Hi
I am travelling to Toronto on as a PR in a couple of weeks and would like open a Canadian Bank account while I am here in India. Is it possible to do it? How safe is it to transfer funds?

Excellent question- I researched and found that RBC does provide options to open an account sitting in India. Did you check out this option?

CIBC does not offer option to open account from outside Canada. I spoke to their call center folks and confirmed this.
