Expecting an Interac® e-Transfer? You'll receive an email or text message with the following details:
- Notification that you've been sent an e-Transfer
- The sender's name
- A link to deposit your funds
To deposit the funds into your First Calgary Financial account online or on the mobile app:
- Click the link in the text or email notification
- Select your province
- Select First Calgary Financial from the drop down list of credit unions
- If on a mobile device or tablet you will receive a prompt asking if you'd like to launch your First Calgary Financial App. Choose to launch the app at this point
- Login to online or mobile banking using the 19-digit number found on your Member Card® and deposit the money into the account of your choice. If you cannot click on the link, you can cut and paste or type the link into your browser
How to use the Autodeposit feature:
You now have the ability to register your email address to have funds deposited directly into your account without having to answer a security question. All you need to do is register for the Autodeposit feature, and when someone sends you money via Interac e-Transfer the funds will be automatically deposited.
How to use the Request Money feature:
Personal and Business members can request money from anyone in Canada within the security of their online banking or mobile app. The new Request money feature allows you to collect funds digitally and have them immediately deposited to your account once the recipient fulfills the transaction. The recipient (the payer) would fulfill the request by clicking on the link within the notification email, and logging in via their own personal online or mobile banking to complete the transaction.

Please note - Never accept an e-Transfer from someone that you don't know, or that you aren't expecting without confirming with the sender first. Fake e-Transfer emails are sometimes sent out as phishing emails. Learn more about how to protect yourself online here.
