Finding your account information

Your account information is made up of a branch/transit number, institution number and your unique account number.

Transit Number
This 5-digit number identifies the advice centre where your Affinity account was opened.  

Institution number
This 3-digit number is also known as the ‘bank’ number. Affinity’s institution number is 889.
Account number
This is a 12-digit number that identifies a specific account under your membership with Affinity.

Why do I need this information?

This information is required when you’re setting up any type of automatic deposit or withdrawal to or from your account, like your payroll, government deposits or regular bill payments.  Setting up automatic payments allows your employer, the government and other business to automatically transfer funds to or from your account, speeding up access to your funds and ensuing you don’t need to worry about manually making your important regular payments.

It’s important to keep this information secure and only provide it to merchants that you’re wishing to set up automatic transactions with.

NEW! Certain CRA payments can be automatically set up through online banking and Affinity Mobile App – See CRA Direct Deposit
