The Bathurst location has been closed for a while. The new location is 569 St. Clair Ave. West which is just around the corner from the previous location.

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.
