Manulife Bank was established on January 1, 1993, when Cabot Trust Company, Huronia Trust Company and the Regional Trust Company were merged by Manulife Financial. Its branch network was sold to the Laurentian Bank of Canada later in 1993 and it became Canada's first bank to sell its products through independent financial advisors.

In 1999, Manulife One was launched – Canada’s first “all-in-one” account. Manulife One allowed Canadians to combine their mortgage and other debts with their chequing and savings accounts to simplify their banking and make their money work more efficiently.

In 2010, Manulife Bank established Manulife Trust Company (Manulife Trust) - a federally chartered trust company licensed to do business in all Canadian provinces and territories. Manulife Trust is a wholly owned subsidiary of Manulife Bank. Like its parent company, Manulife Bank, Manulife Trust is a member of the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC).

Today, Manulife Bank has offices in Waterloo, Ontario and Halifax, Nova Scotia and has a network of more than 200 mortgage specialists across Canada.
