Alberta Treasury Branches Alberta Treasury Branches, also known as ATB Financial, is a full service financial institution and crown corporation owned by the Government of Alberta and based in Edmonton, Alberta. ATB operates in Alberta only, providing financial services to over 600,000 people. ATB has 157 branches as well as 134 agencies, serving a total of 244 communities in Alberta. Wealth management services are offered under the name ATB Investor Services or ATBIS. ATB has more than 4,100 employees. Head offices are in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. With assets of C$20.3 billion, ATB is the largest Alberta-based financial institution.
ATB is not a chartered bank, and unlike other 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.
ATB was created by the first Social Credit ministry under William Aberhart in 1938, after earlier attempts to place Alberta's banks under the provincial government's control 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.
Alterna Bank Alterna Bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alterna Savings, a cooperative credit union that first opened its doors in 1908.

The organization's goal was to be able to provide those services to all Canadians but, as a provincially chartered credit union, was unable to do that.
