We are pleased to bring the convenience of online banking for registered* account contributions and fee payments!

  • Bank of Montreal
  • Canadian imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC)
  • Royal Bank of Canada (RBC)
  • Scotiabank
  • Toronto-Dominion (TD) Bank

How to use this service

CWT clients now have the ability to sign onto their banking institution's website and add CWT as a 'bill payee' to their personal online banking account. 

Adding CWT as a bill payee gives clients the ability to transfer cash from their personal bank account to their RRSP or TFSA as contribution or pay their annual trustee/transaction fees. 


Set-up in 3 easy steps

Simply follow the 3 steps below to contribute to your CWT account and pay CWT fees online. 

Please contact your banking institution for more details on how to add CWT as 'payee' to your online banking. 

  1. Sign into your banking institution's online banking system. 
  2. Navigate to the 'Add Payee' section. 
  3. Add "Canadian Western Trust" as a 'payee'

Please note, there will be two options: important

  1. 'CWT Canadian Western Trust Contribution' - add this option to contribute to an RRSP or TFSA account
  2. 'CWT Canadian Western Trust Fee Payment' - add this option to pay CWT's annual trustee/transaction fees

The 8 digit CWT account number is required to add CWT as a payee. This account number is found on CWT statements and on Cweb

For account numbers with less than 8 digits, 0s need to be entered to the beginning of the account number to make the entry a total of 8 digits.  

Once received and processed by CWT, the contribution or fee payment transaction will be visible on Cweb the next business day. 


Errors and corrections

If a contribution is made to an account that is unable to accept contributions (e.g. RRIF, Locked-In Account, Non-Registered Account, etc.), CWT will remit the payment back to the payor via EFT. 

If any error is made in the process of adding CWT as a payee or submitting a transaction to CWT, the payor must contact CWT to correct the error, not the banking institution. Errors may include:

  • Payee type was entered as 'CWT Canadian Western Trustee Fee Payment' rather than 'CWT Canadian Western Trust Contribution'
  • The wrong account number was entered
  • The incorrect account was entered
