Abstract:

Many Canadians will be surprised to hear that the Government of Alberta, alone among the provinces, owns a bank, the Alberta Treasury Branch (ATB), currently marketed in the province as ATB Financial Group. It's origins lie partly in the traditional western desire to have less central Canada control over the Alberta economy. And while the ATB has been a part of the many Alberta successes over time, times do change. We need to question whether government ownership of financial services business is necessary in a time of internet and smartphone banking and, more broadly, a vigorously competitive financial services market.
