Financial Institutions Branch Directory

The Financial Institutions Branch Directory (FIBD) provides routing numbers and addresses for branches of all Canadian financial institutions.

Information in the FIBD is drawn from Payments Canada’s Financial Institutions File (FIF) database and is updated weekly, based on information received from members. The FIF is also available on a subscription basis. It offers enhanced functionality for frequent users and can be imported in a variety of business applications. For more information, you can reach out to your Member institution or read more about the FIF and routing numbers.

Tips for Using the FIBD:

  • For each branch, routing numbers are provided in two formats: one for electronic payments, and the other for MICR-encoded paper payment items.
  • The Geographical List is organized by municipality. Use it to find the branch routing number when the location of the branch is known. Consult the Payments Canada Member List to confirm the name of the financial institution, if necessary.
  • Use the Numeric List to find the branch address when the routing number is known.
