Flinks developed the most reliable financial API on the Canadian market. With the coverage of 98% of the country’s banks and credit unions, Flinks is the leader in financial data access in Canada.

Our financial API enables users to instantly synchronize with platforms up to 12 months of official bank statement history in PDF format.

 

We’re happy to announce GetStatements, our newest API feature that gives access to up to 12 months of PDF bank statements, an official source of financial data, in seconds. This API improvement constitutes another step towards enabling people and companies to focus on what they’re really good at, by eliminating repetitive manual tasks.

Platforms can now integrate the GetStatements feature through Flinks Connect.

Specifically, Flinks financial API enables accounting platforms to pull their users’ bank statements each month, so an up-to-date history of all banking activities remains securely stored and easily accessible. On top of the monthly refresh, any initial connection can retrieve up to 12 months of official bank statement history.

On a technical note, Flinks does not generate a new PDF out of raw transaction data, but rather pulls the official version produced by the financial institution of the account. As of today, over 98% of the market is covered by Flinks financial API. View our complete coverage here.

One of the way to access this feature is through Flinks Connect. You can white label, and embed the Flinks Connect hosted solution directly on your website.

Here’s what Flinks API automatically retrieves for accounting platforms:

  • During user onboarding: 12 months of bank statement history
  • After user onboarding: the latest month of bank statements available, for each bank account linked to the session
  • KYC information including name, civic address, email and phone number.
