Our Story.

Peoples Group has been providing tailored financial services to the Canadian marketplace for over 35 years. Since 1985, our focus has been on exceptional customer service backed by extensive product knowledge and experience.

When we first opened our doors, we specialized in residential and multi-family mortgage products along with short and long term guaranteed investment certificates with rates consistently among the best in Canada.

Since then, we have expanded our product portfolio to include RRSPs, TFSAs, and our e-Savings account with online banking convenience. We also offer prepaid cards and payment solutions providing connectivity to Visa*, Mastercard®, Interac®, and American Express.

Because we’re a boutique institution, we aren’t all things to all people. Instead, we focus our resources on a specific set of products and services in order to provide you with the highest level of customer service.

CEO’s Message

Welcome to peoplesgroup.com, the website of Peoples Group of Companies. We offer specialty financial products and services to meet the specific needs of our discerning customer base. We succeed in a marketplace dominated by very large institutions and continue to prosper because we provide an ingredient that appears to be in short supply – Quality.

In today’s business environment, Peoples Group stands out as we have chosen to provide excellence in selected areas, rather than attempting to provide all things to all people. We focus on what is important to our customers: providing a world-class personalized customer experience. Our personal approach, delivered through our team of talented professionals, shows our dedication in providing you with unparalleled service.

In the aim of enlarging our footprint and product offerings, our Peoples Group corporate family has expanded beyond our long standing business of Peoples Trust, to include Lendful and First Inheritance. Most recently, we established Peoples Bank of Canada, which opened in late 2019. We are also thrilled to unveil our refreshed brand identity and logo, signifying our focus on future growth while continuing to provide the level of excellence we pride ourselves in for over 35 years.

As President & Chief Executive Officer, I promise that we will continue to be dedicated in providing the very best in personalized, professional service to each and every one of our customers.

If you need a specific financial solution, or it’s time for a change from your existing institution, I invite you to browse the remainder of our web pages and contact us. Why not give us the opportunity to prove that at Peoples Group, “It’s about you”.
