New-to-Canada Students

Adjusting to student life in Canada can be hard. Banking shouldn't be.


We know that adjusting to life in a new country can be overwhelming – especially for students, who may be away from home for the first time. While we can’t help with every challenge, we can make banking easier for international students who are studying at Alberta colleges or universities. When you choose ATB, you’ll have access to friendly, helpful professional bankers right on campus at the University of Alberta, University of Calgary or SAIT who can answer your questions and walk you through the banking process.

In the meantime, check out the articles below for some helpful information that can get you started. And make sure to read through our Student Survival Guide for information on how to manage your credit and avoid debt drama.
