Opening a bank account in Canada.
How to secure private or corporate capital? The best way to achieve this goal is to choose a safe and reliable banking institution that can provide the maximum degree of protection for deposits of both residents and non-residents. But the functionality of a financial institution is far from all. Also, to maximize this indicator, the following parameters are required: Effective, competent, and, most importantly, working legislation in force. Stable national currency of the country in which the selected bank is registered. Stable political environment (both domestically and internationally) Ensuring the protection of bank deposits from the state (applicable both to residents and non-residents). The full combination of all the above factors creates ideal conditions storage for both private and corporate capital. And now there are a number of countries that fully (or almost completely) correspond to the above parameters. Canada is one of them. Canada is currently one of the most attractive countries for immigration. A favorable political environment, a strong economy and a neighborhood with the United States make this country an extremely profitable place not only for life, but also for doing business. And in both cases, a citizen will necessarily require a bank account. But how to open it to a non-resident? This will require preparing and submitting to the relevant authorities a certain set of documents.
