How Global and Local Forces May Impact Banking in Alberta: CBA President to Address Calgary Chamber

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 22, 2012) - The Canadian Bankers Association (CBA) president Terry Campbell will speak about Canada's banking industry and how global forces and local policies today may impact banking in Alberta tomorrow, when he delivers a keynote breakfast speech to the Calgary Chamber on Friday, May 25.

Canada has the soundest banking system in the world and yet, since the global financial crisis, banks in Canada have been subject to intensifying international regulation plus federal and provincial government policies that have an impact on banks. In his remarks, Mr. Campbell will provide an in-depth look at how banks serve communities and customers across Alberta today while working to ensure that the growing list of domestic and international regulations doesn't limit how they meet the needs of customers in the future.
