International Money Transfers


Destination countries Transfers can be made to most countries (e.g. United States, Mexico, France, Belgium, United Kingdom, Italy) thanks to the Desjardins International Service Centre’s worldwide network of correspondents.
Types of transfers Direct deposits and SWIFT transfers.
Information required Differs based on the destination country.
Maximum daily amount There is a transfer limit set for your account, but the system also factors in the limit set by the destination country as well as a security limit determined by Desjardins. The lowest of the 3 limits is displayed on AccèsD by clicking Transfers and selecting International money transfers, and the Make a transfer tab.
