In April 1964, CIBC introduced the only floating bank in Canada. The vessel served 5000 clients in remote small towns along the lower north shore of the St. Lawrence River in Québec. The M.V. Jean Brillant was customized with a small branch complete with teller’s window and living quarters for the officer in charge. If the vessel could not find a place to dock, clients would row out to the boat to complete their banking.
