SIMT (Study on International Money Transfers)


The objective of this study is to collect information about international money transfers, from residents of Canada to their relatives or friends living outside Canada.

This study explores topics such as the various ways to send money, reasons for choosing one method over another, and the different uses of the money, as well as amounts transferred, fees and frequency of transferring money.

The results of this study will be used by Global Affairs Canada to help guide policies and programs with the goal of lowering the costs to send money outside Canada, and allow for safer, more reliable money transfers.
