ATB is not a chartered bank, and unlike all banks operating in Canada, ATB is regulated entirely by the Government of Alberta, under the authority of the Alberta Treasury Branches Act, Chapter A-37.9, 1997, and Treasury Branches Regulation 187/97. The legislation is modeled on the statutes and regulations governing other financial institutions and other guidelines to financial institutions issued by the federal Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions and the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation. ATB Financial is one of fifteen financial institutions that participates in Canada's Large Value Transfer System.

History[edit]

ATB was created by the first Social Credit government of Premier William Aberhart on September 29, 1938, after earlier attempts to impose government control over banks operating in Alberta were thwarted by the federal government. The first Alberta Treasury Branch was opened in Rocky Mountain House on September 29 of that year. ATB is the most significant surviving remnant of social credit economic policies in Alberta. han.pdf</ref>[3] defaulted on loans.
