This account is designed as a traditional savings account that allows you to work toward your goals and earn a competitive interest rate on the money you save. You can still perform transactions through this account, but you will have to pay extra. Consider opening a chequing account as well. That will save you from paying for every transaction.
Different interest rates are applied to each tier of the daily closing balance of the account—one tier being the portion of the balance below $5,000, another tier being the portion of the balance between $5,000 and below $250,000 and the last tier being the portion of the balance $250,000 and above.
Within Alberta, you pay regular fees at non-ATB ABMs. You should be notified of these fees and prompted to approve them before proceeding with the transaction.

Interest is calculated on the daily account closing balance and paid monthly on the last business day of the month. Interest is paid in the same currency as the account. Interest rates are calculated on a per annum basis. Interest rates and balance tiers are subject to change at any time without advance notice.
ABM withdrawals are converted to Canadian dollars using an exchange rate 2.5% above the exchange rate set by Mastercard International Incorporated (which operates the Cirrus® ATM Network). Some transactions may take a few days to be processed. You’ll be charged the applicable exchange rate on the day your transaction goes through your account, not necessarily the rate on the day you made the transaction.
