Therefore, we’re happy to provide you with a free quote for the amount of money you wish to transfer, detailing what you’ll receive after completing the transaction.

If you’d like to move forward with our services after reviewing your quoted exchange rate, it’s time to book your transaction.

On the transfer form, confirm the exchange rate from the quote you received, and we’ll send a receipt. Your receipt will list the full transfer details so there are no surprises regarding what you’ll receive following the completion of your transaction.

If you accidentally entered the wrong information or simply wish to check the details, don’t worry – we’ll never complete the process of transferring the funds until you’ve verified everything is correct.

Complete Your Money Transfer

Step 3: Complete the Transfer

Once you’ve confirmed, you can send a bank transfer or online bill payment to complete the process of exchanging your funds.

Our service works with all operating banks in Ottawa and throughout Canada, so don’t worry about checking if your bank qualifies.

Once you’ve completed the transfer, you’ll receive your funds the day of or the day following the completed transfer process.
