TORONTO, September 14 – Canada’s banks stand with Canadians in honouring the memory of Queen Elizabeth II. We will reflect on the Queen’s legacy by observing a moment of silence on Monday, September 19, 2022.

Banks in Canada will remain open for normal business on that day, during standard hours, which vary by location.

We recognize the significance of this historic moment and Canada’s banks are committed to delivering essential services as millions of Canadians rely on predictable, trustworthy banking services to be there for them, whether they’re conducting a routine transaction or making a major purchase, like a home. By keeping the banking system open, banks ensure the continuous functioning of payroll for workers, scheduled bill payments, child support, and mortgage closings.

Customers are encouraged to contact their bank for more information about hours and services.
