Can I open a bank account if I am under 18 years old?
Yes you can! Some banks have rules that say you need your parent’s permission to open a bank account if you are a younger child. But if you are over 13, most banks let you open a bank account.
If you are new to Canada and you have nowhere to stay, or if you have lost your housing here, you might need to stay in a shelter for some time. Shelters are places that give people without a home somewhere to stay.
