I'm a Canadian citizen living in Canada, but planning to move to the US next year. Can I open a TD(USA) account from here in Canada? Note that I'm currently banking with another Canadian Bank, so I do not have a TD account.

Hi there Mat,
Great to have you with us today and we would love to welcome you to TD!
We have good news for you, since you mentioned that you're a Canadian resident, you'll be happy to learn that you're eligible to open a TD Bank U.S. deposit account of your choosing! It's not necessary to bank with our partners in Canada to open an account with us. However, if you think you might maintain an account in Canada once you move to the States, you may like to consider banking with both banks as we make transferring funds easy for you! When opening an account with us from Canada, you have several options including online, by phone, or in person. We'll tell you more about all of this below.
First, if you haven't already done so we invite you to view all of our account options, so that you can find an account which best fits your needs. Our Checking account options are listed here: http://bit.ly/1oXjGgF, or you can use our Checking Selector at http://bit.ly/1vW1xnU. And our Savings products are listed here: http://bit.ly/1hzzhPT, or use our Savings Selector at http://bit.ly/1sxY9Rd. The Selectors can help you find the best product for you after you answer a couple quick questions.
Once you find an account that suits you and your banking needs, if you would like to open your account by phone you're welcome to call our Cross Border Banking Team at 877-700-2913, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for assistance. We'd be glad to answer any questions you have on that line as well if you'd like to give us a call.
You also have the option to open your account online. Please click here: http://bit.ly/1ishIab to begin an application for an account with us here in the States. Or, you can also visit any TD Canada Trust branch to get started on your U.S. account! Feel free to find one of their locations nearest you right here: http://bit.ly/18OJlY5.
We'd also like to tell you a little more about being a Customer of both TD Bank U.S. and TD Canada Trust! If you decide to do so, you'll be able to take advantage of our convenient Cross Border Banking options. For more information, please take a look here: http://bit.ly/1ienPN4.
As an example, when using this service you'll be able to transfer funds between your TD Bank U.S. and TD Canada Trust personal accounts free of charge. If you wish to, please feel free to speak with a Representative from our TD Cross Border Banking Support Line 24/7 at the number mentioned earlier, who can also answer any questions you have about these services.
Mat, we are available for you here as well if you have any other thoughts about this process or if would like to clarify any details! Just click the 'Reply' button in the top right corner.
We hope this helps and we wish you the best of luck with your move!
Looking forward to chatting with you again soon about this and take care.
