  1. A valid government issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport (Not a photocopy)
  2. Social Insurance Number (SIN) issued by the Government of Canada
  3. A void cheque or Bank Confirmation Form from a Canadian bank

Yes, there are two possible scenarios:

  1. If your residency (for tax purposes) is in British Columbia, Alberta, or Ontario, and you have a bank account in Canada, you can open an investment account at GF Canada with your SIN number.
