If you're already a CWB client, you may log into your online banking to open additional accounts, or email us at [email protected], and we'll be happy to help.
If I open a personal account using the online application system, can I go to any branch if I need other products or services?
Can I open a joint account online?
Yes, you can do this using our online application.
A couple of notes before you apply:
- To open a joint account, both applicants must be new to CWB. If either applicant is already a CWB client, please contact one of our branches for assistance.
- Since you’ll be sharing one or more accounts with another person, we'll need to know a little about that person. During the application process we'll ask you for their first and last name, as well as their email address and mobile phone number. We’ll use this information to contact your co-applicant about this application, in accordance with our CWB Financial Group Privacy Statement.
- Joint accounts are treated as individual accounts until your co-applicant has completed their application and been approved by CWB. Until this happens, you will be solely responsible for these accounts.
Can I save my application and resume later?
Yes. You can complete your application over multiple sessions or days, as we automatically save all of the information you provide. If you want to take a break from your application, just hit save and we'll send you an e-mail with instructions on how to resume it later
