We have a committed and long-standing history serving clients in Canada, and today we operate five diverse lines of business that employ more than 450 people throughout the country. Dedicated teams in Calgary, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver deliver a comprehensive and cohesive range of financial products and services. We contribute to non-profit organizations in the four cities where we operate, investing significantly in educational, economic and cultural development through local partnerships.
Our presence in Canada dates back to the 1800s when we invested in the country’s railroads, industries and municipalities. We established our first representative office in Toronto in 1965, and in 1981, Morgan Bank of Canada became the first foreign bank established in the country after changes to the Bank Act.
