More Canadian banks say their credit card and debit card customers will be able to use Apple Pay starting today.

The mobile payment service works with certain models of the Apple iPhone 6, iPad tablets and Apple Watch.

The Apple tap-and-pay system was first launched south of the border in 2014 and introduced in Canada last November, but without support from the big banks until last month.

Royal Bank and CIBC began offering the system for their Visa, Mastercard and Interac card clients on May 10.

Scotiabank and TD Bank announced early this morning that their Apple Pay systems for credit and debit cards were starting today.

The Interac interbank system also said debit cards from Bank of Montreal will now support Apple Pay transactions.
