About Us

Canada's Challenger Bank™

Equitable Bank manages over $74.1 billion in assets and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of EQB Inc. It was founded in 1970 as The Equitable Trust Company and has become Canada’s seventh largest Schedule I bank. Equitable Bank offers a diverse suite of residential lending, commercial lending, and savings solutions, including high-interest savings products and GICs.

At Equitable, we have no doubt that financial services are changing. Consumers increasingly prefer to interact remotely through digital channels and are less likely to visit brick and mortar locations. That’s why we launched EQ Bank in 2016. Its approach to simple and convenient banking makes it a strong contender in the industry. We believe there’s an opportunity for something different, to provide better service and a better deal for our customers through digital banking.

To further broaden our services, Equitable Trust, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Equitable Bank, now offers deposit products to help Canadians reach their financial goals.
