TD Bank versus TD Canada Trust: What’s the difference?
The Toronto-Dominion Bank provides a full range of financial products and services to Canadians through its Canada-based subsidiary, TD Canada Trust. It provides banking products and services to Americans through its US-based subsidiary, TD Bank.
Even though TD Canada Trust and TD Bank are both owned by the same company, they are separate financial institutions. Banking conducted from Canada can only be done through TD Canada Trust, while banking conducted from the States can only be done through TD Bank. On this site, we review products and services offered by TD Canada Trust, but sometimes refer to it as TD bank for convenience. To learn more about TD’s cross-border banking solutions or to find out if a U.S.-based account is right for you, speak to a representative at your local branch.
