National Bank of Canada USA PATRIOT Act Certification

The Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA PATRIOT ACT) Act of 2001 (the “Act”) and final rules issued by the Treasury Department of the United States of America require Covered Financial Institutions to obtain certain information from Foreign Banks that maintain a correspondent account with it.

Pursuant to the final rules, National Bank of Canada has executed a global certification for use by any Covered Financial Institution that requires such certification from National Bank of Canada. Please access this certification rather than requesting from National Bank of Canada an individual certification pertaining to your Covered Financial Institution.
