What is the verification process in Canada?

To comply with Canadian regulations we need to fully verify all customers sending from Canada.

If you are sending $1,000 or more, you will be asked to provide some additional documentation as well as the standard ID requirements.

This can include:

  1. Government issued photo ID
  • Current Canadian passport
  • Current Canadian Driving Licence
  • Current Canadian residence permit
  1. Proof of address

To verify your address we need to see a bank statement, T4 or utility bill. The document you provide must not be older than 6 months, and the address printed on this must match that on your WorldRemit account. Bills we can accept are:

  • Telephone bill
  • Electricity / gas bill
  • Water bill

Please note, until we have completed ID verification we will be unable to complete your transfer.
