To view a CIBC statement online, sign up online for eStatements, explains CIBC. Registering the account online requires basic information, such as the card number and identity verification. The user must also choose a password and sign an Electronic Access Agreement.
After creating an account, sign into the account, and select the option to view eStatements. The preference tab on the bank account view allows the account holder to elect to receive account alerts by email and text although these are not a requirement to view statements online, according CIBC. The alerts by text and email offer various reminders for the bank customer to keep up with banking activity.
