No HSBC wire transfer fee

We’ll waive our fee when you send a wire transfer:

(1) in a currency that’s different from the currency of the sending account, and

(2) that is valued under $10,000 (CAD equivalent), and

(3) from an HSBC Bank Canada personal account.

The CAD equivalent is determined based on the exchange rates at the time the transfer is processed. You may also be charged fees by agencies or banks that process or receive your transfer, which we are unable to waive.

Wire transfer limits

The daily limit is $50,000 (CAD equivalent). For wire transfers between $50,000 and up to $150,000 (CAD equivalent), you’ll need additional authorization: log on to your account, add your new wire transfer payee and then call Customer Service at 1-877-621-8811
