STCL, post-continuance, will be non-deposit taking, and will offer estate and trust services to its clients in B.C.

The amalgamated company is, and will continue to be, a non-deposit taking trust company, offering estate and trust services to its clients across Canada. Its head office will remain in Toronto, Ontario.
