I have opened an account in the Philippines prior to our departure. I would like to enquire if I can deposit or withdraw here in Canada.

I want to use you service to transfer money to a metrobank account here in the Philippines one day after I arrive there in Canada, do I need to open-up an account of my own to do the funds transfer?

Yes, Nelson. It's better to open a Metrobank account first here in the Philippines.
