    Sunshine Coast Credit Union members can quickly and securely transfer funds to virtually anyone.

    Any SCCU branch can arrange wire transfers in Canadian or foreign currency. Expect funds to arrive within three to five business days.

    Receiving wire transfers

    If you wish to receive a wire transfer, you will need to provide your wiring instructions. 

    Incomplete wire instructions may return funds to the sending financial institution. The sending and intermediary financial institutions may deduct service charges before the wire arrives at SCCU. We cannot control these fees and are not informed of them before sending funds. SCCU charges $10 to process incoming wire transfers in Canadian dollars and all foreign currencies (except US dollars, which is $10 USD).

    For incoming wire transfer instructions, call the Member Service Centre at 604.740.2662.
