Pay yourself first with a Pre-Authorized Checking account
Whether you're managing a career, running the kids to events, maintaining the home or all of these at once, life is busy. Making regular contributions to retirement and education savings accounts throughout the year can sometimes fall through the cracks. At the same time, you know that saving for important goals such as retirement or a child's education is important.
You can make life easier by establishing a Pre-Authorized Chequing (PAC) account for as low as $50 a month. At no additional cost, a PAC allows you to make regular deposits into your account through electronic funds transfer from your bank account.
Already have a PAC? Give it a boost by either increasing the frequency or dollar amount, or both!

Regular investments add up over time
Make paying yourself automatic with a disciplined schedule of investing. Regular investments go a long way when compounding has a chance to work for you over a longer period of time.
Take advantage of volatile markets
Use a PAC to dollar-cost average, it’s an excellent way to help lessen the effects of a volatile market environment. When you invest a fixed amount regularly, over a longer period of time, you may purchase more shares when prices are low and fewer shares when prices are high. That's the benefit of dollar-cost averaging.
It's simple and automatic
Setting up your PAC is quick and easy. If you choose to make contributions to a Tax-Free Savings Account, Registered Retirement Savings Plan or Registered Education Savings Plan, you can set up your plan so that the maximum allowable contribution is made automatically.
