Free monthly plan with unlimited transactions1 for full-time university students.

  1. This promotional offer is for student members who are enrolled full-time at a Canadian university, regardless of their age. If you get this offer, you can choose the Unlimited plan, free of charge, or apply the value of this plan, meaning $13.95 a month, to the monthly fee of the Unlimited Plus plan and pay only the difference, which is $8.00 a month. To get this offer, you must go to your caisse or call 1-800-CAISSES. You must also be able to prove that you meet the eligibility requirements. No matter which plan you select, an additional fee of $1.50, $3 or $5 will apply to any withdrawals made from non-Desjardins ATMs affiliated with the Interac® and Plus* networks. Some providers charge additional fees to use their ATMs. They must notify you via an on-screen message before processing the transaction, so you can choose to cancel the transaction. These fees are added to the withdrawal amount.
