RBC and CIBC add debit and credit cards to Apple Wallet in Canada

I was pleasantly surprised after a long wait to see RBC add debit and credit card functionality to Apply Pay today. I had lost touch with the Big 5 Canadian Banks efforts to develop a co-ordinated front on Apple Pay but I see now that they must have agreed on something. They are deploying on their own schedules with RBC and CIBC out first.

Here is the RBC page.

And here is my Apple Wallet that I had almost given up on for Canada. Now I have to go and buy a Tim Hortons coffee tomorrow. Hopefully the merchant sign up will get into a different gear now.
