Between 2016 and 2019, Canada’s 5 Big Banks provided financing for nearly half a trillion dollars (482 billion) to the fossil fuel industry globally. And domestically, they hold close to 70% of the financing (69.8 billion) in the Tar Sands, one of the world’s dirtiest oil. Aside from JPMorganChase, they are the worst fossil bankers in the Tar Sands.
By providing the lion share of the money for Tar Sands expansion, our major banks are carbon majors and drivers of climate change — RBC (Royal Bank), TD (Toronto-Dominion), JPMorgan Chase, Bank of Montreal and CIBC (Imperial Bank of Commerce).
