The Montreal Trust Company was formed in 1889 and 100 years later described itself as "one of Canada's largest trust companies."


Montreal Trust was founded by the Bank of Montreal; Donald Smith and E.S. Clouston were amongst its charter board of directors.[1]

In 1994, Scotiabank acquired Montreal Trust.[2]

The stock transfer and corporate trust businesses of Montreal Trust were acquired by Computershare in 2000.[3]
