FAQs

You’ll automatically become a Premium client when you reach $100,000 with Wealthsimple.

Similarly, you’ll automatically become a Generation client when you reach $500,000 with Wealthsimple.

Your status is determined by whichever is higher — the value of your net deposits, or the value of your entire Wealthsimple portfolio.

So whether you’re a long-time client whose portfolio value has gone up over time (nice), or a brand-new client transferring to us, we want you to have every opportunity to qualify for Premium or Generation.

Almost all your Wealthsimple accounts are included! TFSAs, RESPs, RRSPs, GRSPs, LIRAs, and non-registered accounts — they’re all included, whether they’re Managed investing accounts or Self-directed accounts. So are your Crypto, Save, and Cash accounts.

If both your net deposits and total assets with Wealthsimple fall and stay below the $100,000 or $500,000 minimum you will be subject to a change in status.

You’ll no longer be charged for USD accounts, but you’ll keep receiving the same great benefits. You’ll save $10 a month, and continue on your path to reaching Generation status.

Your Premium and Generation plan comes with the perk of access to one of our experienced advisors. Set up time and get advice to help you meet your financial goals. Contact our team here.

Medcan's Comprehensive Health Plan helps you optimize your health now and in the future with a wide range of services. They include an annual health assessment, diagnostic testing with same-day results, on-demand appointments, travel health support, and genetics and genetic counselling.
