Peace Hills Trust is Canada’s largest and oldest privately owned First Nations federally regulated financial institution, and is also Canada’s only independent Trust Company. PHT was founded with the objective of providing financial and trust services, on a national basis, to First Nations and their communities. With branches in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Atlantic Canada, PHT is able to service their customer base across the country.
