Institution Numbers of Canadian Banks

Sometimes we need Bank’s Institution Number. We can find this number from our banking check. However, most of time we don’t have a check. And, when we open an account in the bank, the bank staff usually do not tell us the Institution Number but only account number and transaction number.
