How to Add Card and Use Apple Pay in Canada (For iPhones, iPad and Apple Watch)

Today, Apple Pay had finally announced that its services had expanded, hence can be used by Canadians with credit cards from CIBC, RBC, ATB Financial, and Canadian Tire Financial Services.

Apple Pay is Apple’s mobile payment solution. It works with the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE and Apple Watch. Apple Pay will not work on the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s because it lacks the necessary NFC chip but the small good news here is it will work if you connect your Apple Watch to it.
In addition, iOS users can make in-app Apple Pay purchases with Touch ID-equipped iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro.
