Crown Trust Company

The Crown Trust Company was an Ontario-based firm that operated in most of Canada[1][2] prior to its bankruptcy, along with several other trusts, in 1983. The bankruptcies occurred when a major Canadian recession drove down speculative real estate values into which the trusts had made increasingly bad loans during a period of rising inflation and interest rates. Crown Trust, and many other Canadian financial institutions, were left with an overwhelming volume of defaulted mortgages.
