MacRumors:

As of today, debit and major credit cards issued by RBC and CIBC will support Apple Pay, with TD Canada Trust, Scotiabank, and BMO expected to follow in the coming months to complete the rollout across Canada’s “Big Five”.

ATB Financial and Canadian Tire Financial Services are two other financial institutions also to sign up to the payment service.

Apple Pay in Canada had been limited to American Express cardholders. The service launched in Canada in its limited form, back in November 2015. The service initially launched in the U.S. in October 2014.

Owners of late model iPhones or the Apple Watch will be able to add cards from RBC and CIBC in order to make in-store payments for goods and services at a number of participating retailers, including: McDonald’s, Sport Chek, Tim Hortons, and others with NFC payment terminals that accept the Apple Pay touchless payments service.

If your bank or credit union is on today’s list, and you want to add your credit or debit card to Apple Pay, just do the following:

  • iPhone users running iOS 9 can go to the Wallet app and tap the “+” icon in the upper right-hand corner to begin, and then just follow the prompts. Users of iPads with Touch ID can add a card to the service to use in apps by going into “Settings” -> “Wallet & Apple Pay” to add a card there.
  • Apple Watch users will need to enter the Watch app on their iPhone, Tap on the “Wallet & Apple Pay” option, and then tap the “Add Credit or Debit Card” option.
