11 © 2008 Pearson Education Canada10.11 As of 2005 there were 68 chartered banks in Canada and around 7500 in the United States The presence of so many banks in the U.S. reflects past regulations that restricted the ability of these financial institutions to open branches Many small U.S. banks stayed in existence because a large bank capable of driving them out of business was often restricted from opening a branch nearby It was easier for a bank to open a branch in a foreign country than in another state in the U.S. Comparison with the United States

This approach to regulation has been known as the four-pillar approach Recent legislative changes allowed cross-ownership via subsidiaries between financial institutions As a result, Canada’s traditional four pillars have now converged into a single financial services marketplace
