CAFT Services

CAFT (Customer Automated Funds Transfer) Service

The right solution for electronic deposits and pre-authorized payments.


What is CAFT?

CAFT (Customer Automated Funds Transfer) is a secure web-based application that provides credit unions and members the ability to generate electronic deposits and pre-authorized debits.

CAFT access allows you to move money electronically between Canadian Financial Institutions. These electronic files are called AFTs (Automated Funds Transfer).


Not sure if CAFT is for you?

Contact your branch to help you determine if CAFT is the right solution for your organization.

CAFT accounts are subject to approval and may require additional documentation.

Already a CAFT member?

The Payments Canada sets the rules that govern this movement of money by AFTs. The Payments Canada Rules and Standards can be accessed at https://payments.ca/

Lakeland Credit Union reserves the right to suspend your CAFT services at any time without notice for not complying with Payments Canada Rules and Standards and AFT requirements.  Please review your roles and responsibilities as a CAFT User.

Wire Transfers
Sending a wire transfer is a convenient, efficient and safe way to move money between financial institutions almost anywhere in the world.  Funds can be sent in almost any currency and received in either Canadian or U.S. Dollars.

To send or receive a wire, specific information must be provided to ensure the transfer meets all the rules and regulatory requirements, allowing the wire to pass quickly through what may sometimes include multiple systems.  If any information is missing or incorrect, the wire may be delayed or not arrive at its destination at all.

Incoming Wires

To receive a wire transfer you must provide the necessary information to the sender.  Instructions differ depending on where the wire is coming from.  The currency being received will also determine the routing instructions.

Outgoing Wires

Sending cut-off times apply.  Contact your branch for details.

To send a wire transfer you must provide the sender’s full legal name (or full legal business name) and full physical address.  Similar information will be required about the beneficiary along with their banking information and any additional details specific to the destination of the wire. 

Refer to the checklist or complete the information form below to ensure you provide all the necessary details to your Lakeland Credit Union branch for processing.
