Filling in the Map: Growth by Amalgamation

Union Bank of Canada

Union Bank of Canada, Fort Smith, North West Territories, 1921
On June 10, 1921, the Union Bank of Canada opened a branch at Fort Smith, North West Territories in a large tent which attracted a good deal of attention during the ten days that it served as a shelter for the branch. Americans were particularly impressed, thinking it a fine example of the way in which law and order was observed in Canada even in remote settlements. Permanent quarters for the branch and its manager were soon established in a small log cabin.

New Hazelton, British Columbia, c. 1912
Union Bank of Canada branch at New Hazelton, British Columbia. Staff quarters were located at the rear of the branch, a one-storey building constructed of 50 and 25 foot logs. The town site of New Hazelton was located on the route to be followed by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, 100 miles from the end of steel at Van Arsdol. The bank operated a branch there from 1911- 1915 principally on behalf of its clients, Foley, Welch and Stewart, who were building the western section of the railway to Prince Rupert.
