As a registered Money Service Business (MSB) in Canada, Coinsquare is required to verify the eligibility of each client who registers for an account.

Currently, we are able to accept clients who meet all of the following criteria:

  • You must be a resident of Canada, and able to provide proof of an address in Canada.

  • You must be at least the age of majority in your province. This means:

    • 18 years old in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Québec, and Saskatchewan.

    • 19 years old in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, and Yukon.

In addition to these requirements, we may also ask for additional documentation to prove your identity, residence or other information before activating your Coinsquare account.
