The bank was founded in 1855 by a group of entrepreneurs in western Canada (now the province of Ontario). The aim was to found an institution that offers specific financial services for entrepreneurs. In 1854 the first petition was presented to the then provincial government. Thus the newly founded Millers, Merchants and Farmers Bank of Canada West took its first steps. On March 18, 1855, the application for a full banking license was deposited in Toronto with a share capital of 500,000 British pounds. In July 1856, the Bank of Toronto opened its first branch, with three employees at 78 Church Street . The bank began building a network of branches in the province of Ontario. A branch in Montreal followed in 1860.

The Bank of Toronto temporarily had its administration in the building at 205 Yonge Street .

On February 1, 2000, TD took over and incorporated Bank Canada Trust from British American Tobacco . As a result, the private and business customer business is operated under the TD Canada Trust brand.
