The Impact of Global Forces and Local Policies on Banking in B.C.: CBA President to Address Vancouver Board of Trade

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 28, 2012) - The Canadian Bankers Association (CBA) president Terry Campbell will speak about Canada's banking industry and how the impact of global forces and local policies today may impact banking in B.C. tomorrow, when he delivers a keynote luncheon speech to the Vancouver Board of Trade on Thursday, May 31.

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 British Columbia 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.
