SWIFT Codes for Banks in Canada | swift code

Canadian Bank Swift CodeI was looking for Bank of Nova Scotia SWIFT code the other day.  It took me a while to find it.  I am sure many of you may need to use SWIFT code some day.  It would be helpful to know what SWIFT code is and have the codes handy.

SWIFT code is a standard format of Bank Identifier Codes (BIC) and it is unique identification code for a particular bank. These codes are used when transferring money and messages between banks. 

The SWIFT code consists of 8 or 11 characters. When 8-digits code is given, it refers to the primary office.

  • First 4 letters – bank code (only letters)
  • Next 2 letters – ISO  country code (only letters)
  • Next 2 letters – location code (letters and digits) (passive participant will have “1″ in the second character)
  • Last 3 letters or digit – branch code, optional (‘XXX’ for primary office) (letters and digits)

For example, the SWIFT code for Bank of Nova Scotia  is NOSCCATT:

  • NOSC identifies Deutsche Bank
  • CA is the country code for Germany
  • TT is the code for Toronto
