Description and history
The Bank is a chartered bank governed by the Bank Act (Canada). The Bank’s roots date back to 1859 with the founding of the Banque Nationale in Quebec City. Its current charter is the result of a series of amalgamations, notably with the Provincial Bank of Canada in 1979, with the Mercantile Bank of Canada in 1985, and with National Bank Leasing Inc., its wholly-owned subsidiary in 1992. Although no change was made to its statutes in March 2001, the Bank amended section 4.1 of By-Law I of the General By-Law to reduce the minimum and maximum number of directors and, in March 2002, it amended section 4.6 of By-Law I to increase the aggregate remuneration which may be paid to its directors. The Bank offers retail, corporate and investment banking services to individuals, commercial enterprises, financial institutions and governments. The Company provides its services through its offices in each of the Canadian provinces (principally Quebec), the United States, Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia, the Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.
The Bank was formed on May 4, 1859, and was listed on Toronto Stock Exchange on November 1, 1979.
