Terms and conditions

1 The account must have active usage and be in good standing after 6 months. Terms and conditions apply.

2 Fees may increase when Community Savings needs to offset operational cost associated with account activity or administration. Our team members will first look to provide alternate arrangements to offset costs rather than increasing fees. If a fee increase is necessary, changes will be discussed prior to the implementation of the new fee structure.

3 Credits cards available with the successful opening of a QUADs account and approval from Collabria. Credit card annual fees apply.

4 $1.00 per e-transfer sent will be charged after the free limit of 30 e-transfers per month has been reached. e-transfers are not available for product sales.
