Quebec Bank was founded on June 9, 1818 [1] to meet a perceived need by some merchants and residents Quebec City. They wanted an alternative to the newly founded Bank of Montreal which they felt was inadequate for the needs of the province.

The bank was incorporated in 1822 in Quebec City and made good progress until the great revulsion of 1826-7. The first president was Royal Bank of Canada in 1917.[2]

A small reminder of the banks existence is the Quebec Bank Building in Montreal with its name carved over the entrance.
