*Qtrade Investor must verify your signature and identity by clearing a personal cheque from you through your financial institution. You can either provide a personal cheque for the minimum deposit required to open a Qtrade Investor account ($1,000 for a cash account, and $2,000 for a margin account) or, if you are not funding your account with the initial minimum deposit by way of a personal cheque, you can provide Qtrade Investor with a personal cheque in the amount of $10.00. Unless you instruct otherwise, Qtrade Investor will deposit the $10.00 into your Qtrade Investor account. For joint accounts, please ensure that, if the cheque is not from a joint account, both applicants provide personal cheques. A photocopy of government issued identification such as a driver's license or passport is also required with the application.
*Qtrade Investor is a division of Qtrade Securities Inc., member IIROC and CIPF.
