What information needs to be on a proof of residence?

Proof of residence is used to verify the residential address as indicated on the trading agreement. Please provide your residential address.

The Proof of Residence must show:

  • Your name and address as indicated on your account application
  • Be from a credible source (with a visible logo)
  • Dated within the last 6 months. 

Examples of this include:

Utility Bills:

  • Gas
  • Water
  • Electric
  • Telephone

Recent Bank Statement, Signed/stamped bank letter

Tax Documents:

  • T4 Statement
  • GST Refund Letter
  • CRA Notice of assessment


  • Vehicle registration
  • Current lease agreement
  • Auto insurance

Please note:

  • A mobile phone bill will not be accepted as a valid Proof of Residence.
  • Friedberg Direct cannot accept any proof of residence that only provides a P.O. Box. A common solution is to submit a document such as a utility bill that shows the service address along with the mailing address.
  • If all of your residential bills are in the landlord's name, possible solutions include a bank statement or a signed copy of the lease agreement indicating the term of the lease.
