View this page in: Français

We’re at an unprecedented turning point in financial services. There’s massive regulatory reform and uncertainty, we're rebounding from a series of recent scandals that have rocked the wider markets, and the industry must anticipate and respond to shifting consumer behaviours, demands and demographics. Before we look forward though, it’s interesting to reflect upon where we’ve been in Canada and how the landscape has so dramatically changed to take us to where we are today.

In this publication, we take a look at the past and analyze how the Canadian banking system has developed and which emerging issues are having an impact on results such as regulatory capital and return on shareholders’ equity today.
