The Sovereign Bank of Canada was one of four important banks which failed in Canada after 1890. (The others were the Commercial Bank of Manitoba, the Banque du Peuple of Montreal and the Ontario Bank.) In June 1907, the Sovereign Bank wrote off $1.25 million in the reserve fund and $1 million of capital and the bank reorganized. The reorganization failed, and the bank closed its doors on 18 January 1908, with over $16 million in liabilities.
