No. As long as you submit a brokerage transfer request to the same account type, everything stays the same. The only thing that changes is your brokerage. For example, your RRSP/ TFSA contribution room/limit will stay the same and as a result of the transfer.
You can easily check the status of your request by logging in to your Questrade account, hovering over FUNDING, and tapping Transfer account to Questrade history. Depending on the financial institution, the timing of transfer-in process may vary.
Here are some things you should know transferring your accounts over:
- Cash and securities in a registered account can only be transferred to the same type of registered account. For example, an RRSP account can only be transferred into another RRSP
- Depending on certain circumstances, the relinquishing financial institution may charge a transfer-out penalty
- An account transfer typically takes 10-20 business days to complete; however, depending on the financial institution, some transfer requests may take significantly longer
- You may need to fill out additional documents when transferring RESPs and other locked-in accounts. All details will be provided when you submit your request.
