      Canadian commercial banking company with foreign subsidiaries and affiliates. Headquarters are in Montreal.

      The bank was incorporated as the Merchants Bank of Halifax in 1869 and adopted the present name in 1901. Between 1903 and 1983, the bank went through a number of acquisitions and mergers in addition to establishing the Royal Bank of Canada (London). In the early 20th century it acquired several banks in Cuba; these were sold to the Cuban government in 1960.
