Bank statements for a closed account


I am a new business owner. Apologies for maybe asking a quite basic question.
I currently have a business account with Scotia bank and thinking of closing that one and using the BMO account.

Can I just save a pdf copy of the bank statements / transactions in case CRA asks for it for audit in future?
When an audit happens, I have heard that CRA asks for the bank statements- do they reach out to bank directly or would they ask me to provide them a pdf copy of the statements?

Thank you in advance!

Yes saving a copy of the statements is more than sufficient. If the CRA ever audits you that is all that is required.
