Banking services for seniors: know your rights
Banks, members of the Canadian Bankers Association (CBA), have adopted a code of conduct to guide them in the delivery of banking services to seniors.
- establish and implement policies, procedures, and processes to support the code
- communicate with seniors in an effective way
- provide appropriate training to their employees and representatives who serve seniors
- provide appropriate resources to employees and representatives who deal with clients face to face. This is to help them understand matters relevant to seniors’ banking needs
- try to mitigate potential financial harm to seniors
- consider market demographics and the needs of seniors when closing a branch
- publicly disclose the steps they’ve taken to support the principles set out in the code
Banks will make this code available:
- at each of their branches where they offer products or services in Canada and at each of their points of service
- on each of their websites through which they offer products or services in Canada
- in writing, upon request
