  1. Balance Alerts

Balance Alerts

New notifications about your bank account and credit availability

If you are using online banking, balance alerts will be turned on automatically to help keep you informed of low account balances and credit availability. If you are using digital banking and received a moving day email, click here.

In the coming weeks, CWB Balance Alerts will notify you when your deposit account balance or available credit falls below $100. You will be able to change the minimum amount, decide how you receive alerts, or opt out at any time through mobile banking or online banking.  


What are the benefits of balance alerts?
CWB Balance Alerts will inform you of low bank account balances and low available credit for lines of credit and Personal Overdraft Protection accounts. They may help prevent certain fees such as Non-sufficient Funds (NSF). Balance alerts can be customized—you will be able to choose your minimum balance or credit threshold, manage your own alert settings and preferences.
How do I identify balance alert notifications?
Email balance alerts will be sent from [email protected]   
How will balance alerts work?
A CWB Balance Alert will be sent to you any time your available balance or available credit falls below $100 or a minimum threshold of your choice. Balance alerts are initially sent by email, but you will be able to change the way you receive them (email or by SMS/text). You will also be able to opt out of balance alerts at any time.
Who receives balance alerts?

Existing customers with a valid email address who use online banking will receive balance alerts for:

  • Deposit accounts (chequing and saving)
  • Personal Overdraft Protection Accounts
  • Lines of credit

To receive balance alerts, you must be using online banking. To sign up for online banking, contact your banking centre.

Is there a fee for balance alerts?

CWB Balance Alerts is a free service, but standard messaging and data charges may apply depending on your mobile service provider.

Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) charges and additional interest charges or fees may apply if transactions exceed your available balance or credit limit.   

Can I contact my banking centre to change alerts?
Only you will be able to make changes to your balance alert preferences through online or mobile banking.

More FAQs on how to manage your alert preferences will be available soon.
