Regulated by the federal Bank Act, this is an area of almost exclusive federal jurisdiction.
However, credit unions and caisses-populaires are creatures of provincial statute, leading to

Le droit des banques appartient d’emblée au droit des AFFAIRES. Il couvre la réglementation
des activités des banques entre elles et de leurs relations avec la banque centrale. Domaine de
compétence fédérale, on y traite parfois des institutions f‌inancières analogues de compétence
provinciale (caisses d’épargne, caisses populaire et de crédit). Les banques et la monnaie ainsi
que le chèque et les LETTRES DE CHANGE relèvent du droit fédéral.
