How to use this service

CWB Trust Services 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 CWB Trust Services 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 CWB Trust Services account and pay CWB Trust Services 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 CWB Trust Services account number is required to add CWB Trust Services as a payee. This account number is found on CWB Trust Services 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 CWB Trust Services, 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.), CWB Trust Services will remit the payment back to the payor via EFT. 

If any error is made in the process of adding CWB Trust Services as a payee or submitting a transaction to CWB Trust Services, the payor must contact CWB Trust Services 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
