Before Canada was even Canada. .On that the town of London, Ontario, 25 pioneer businessmen gathered together in the room above MacFie's Store, and founded' what is now Canada Trust. Soon they had opened our very first office just behind that store. Now that small brick building, behind MacFie's Store is gone. So is MacFie's Store. Our 25 founders have long since passed away. But the original idea born at that early meeting still lives on in our present company philosophy: "To bring the maximum amount of energy and in- telligence to bear on the project in order to most effectively serve the client" It's simple, true. But it works. Now, with over a century of experience behind we're one of Canada's largest trust companies with more branches coastto coast than anyone else. Arid our philosophy of service has made it all possible. Service. Service for every financial need. You get it the minute you walk in our door or dial oui phone.
