About the Bank

What We Do

Retail Debt Services

Under its retail debt program, the government issues Canada Savings Bonds and Canada Premium Bonds. These bonds are available through a network of sales agents, as well as through organizations sponsoring the Payroll Savings Program, and through direct sales by telephone or via the Internet.

As fiscal agent for the government, the Bank is responsible for providing operations and systems support services, accounting, and advice for the retail debt program. The program is directed by the Department of Finance through its agency Canada Investment and Savings, which is responsible for the strategic direction of the business, as well as the management of products, sales, marketing, and public relations.
