TD Canada Trust is a banking giant in Canada, with 1,100 branches and 10,000,000 customers. TD Trust acquired Canada Trust in 2000 and the combined company now covers the entire country.
One of the thing the bank emphases in commercials and promotions are its longer-than-normal banking hours and the fact that many of it branches are in convenient locations, such as malls and larger grocery stores.
