Wire Transfers

Westminster Savings' wire transfer service lets you send money to or receive money from almost any country in the world.

Important Notice Our wire service provider has recently been advised that the intermediary bank they use will no longer be processing incoming international wires. Members who receive incoming USD or Foreign wire transfers must provide new routing instructions to their sender no later than September 8, 2014. After that date, you will not receive funds wired to you using the old routing instructions. Up-to-date routing instructions are below. If you need further assistance, our Member Service Centre 604-517-0100 or your local branch will be happy to help.
