Does anyone know anything about Canadian banks....which ones are good in Alberta?
RBC/Scotiabank etc....also what do you think of online banks like Presidents Choice?

We have an ATB and a TD account. TD is by far the better bank. Online services at least slightly more comparable to UK. Still not as good as Natwest that is for sure!

We use BMO and Scotiabank.....We also have an online account with ING...I find the customer 'care' at both BMO and Scotia to be vastly better than I ever experienced in the UK...Otherwise they are just like any other bank....I am pretty sure you can just take your pick!!

Always check out PC Financial. They are an online bank, but you can use CIBC bank machines, and all of their accounts are free of fees. I use them for my chequing, savings, mortgage and mastercard!

I use RBC and BMO - RBC gave us a credit card quicker though which is very imprtant for establishing credit here
