Android Pay Arrives In Canada


Canada today joins the list of countries where Google’s Android Pay platform is officially supported. If you are an Android user in Canada, you can now download and install the application from the Play Store.

Here are the banks that support Android Pay:

  • BMO
  • CIBC
  • Banque Nationale
  • Scotiabank
  • Desjardins
  • President’s Choice Financial
  • ATB Financial,
  • Canadian Tire Financial Services

Android Pay works on any Android device with KitKat 4.4 or higher and it must have NFC as well. On top of that, your device cannot be rooted or jailbroken. You can get more answers to your questions here.

Please post a comment below if you’ve tried Android Pay in Canada and what your experience was like.

UPDATE: I just noticed that TD and RBC are missing from the list of banks that support Android Pay. That’s weird. Also a video has gone up to support this launch:

Finally, Interac Debit support on the Android Pay platform is coming on Monday. American Express coming later this summer.
