How can we help?

As a non-resident, what type of accounts can I open?

If you are not currently residing in Canada but you have existing TFSAs and RRSPs, we can assist you with transferring and managing those accounts. 

You can open a new Non-Registered account, or transfer an existing one. 

New deposits can be made to a Non-Registered investment account.

The minimum investment balance requirement for non-residents is $25,000.

Availability varies by country. We do not open accounts for residents of jurisdictions:

  1. Located in the European Economic Area
  2. Listed on the Financial Action Task Force high risk jurisdictions subject to call for action
  3. Subject to sanctions imposed by the Government of Canada

As long as your country of residence is not in one of those three groups, we can work with you.

CI Direct Investing is unable to service US residents with non-registered accounts.
