With less than a year to go before Canada plans to legalize recreational pot in July, and 16 years after making it legal for medical use, Bank of Montreal and Toronto-Dominion are providing business accounts to at least 21 cannabis companies, according to interviews with 45 firms tied to the drug. Alterna Savings and Credit Union Ltd. is top among co-operative lenders.

The rankings were based on each city’s price-to-income ratio, which calculates how long it would take a homeowner to pay for their home using 100 per cent of their annual income. Vancouver’s price-to-income ratio was a staggering 28, based on an average home price of 1,071,800.
