I used to think HSBC was related to HBC. As in, affiliated somehow with Hudson's Bay Company.

East of Toronto, they’re small. Only 2 branches in Ottawa/the NCR (would be more like 8 if proportional to the GTA). Greater Montreal only has 9, which is actually proportionally higher than the NCR. Quebec City and Halifax both have only a single branch each. HSBC claim they’re the seventh largest bank in Canada.
Not sure if it's still there, but I remember seeing an HSBC branch in Kingston a decade ago. I think it was near Princess and Bath. Very well may have been there to serve the Queen's University community, which has a fair number of Chinese international students.

I also recall seeing HSBC having a fairly strong presence in Mexico City. I believe some of their staff were clients of mine when I did work there.

Unclear from which Canadian destinations, likely all from YYC -- Will update tonight. Very interesting that they are going for the main airports instead of the secondary airports similar to Swoop and Flair.
Well, going to BUR instead of LAX didn't work too well for Flair. So far, looks like the LAX flight is doing good enough that Flair already boost YVR-LAX to 5x weekly next spring.

And I remember some article said Swoop applied for LGB slot and was at the top of the waiting list. Now some other airlines recently awarded LGB slot but Swoop didn't get any, I guess they've given up on that as well?

Don't think of HSBC as an Asian bank. It is more British than Chinese. Largest bank in Europe.

Yes it does have a roots in Hong Kong and a strong presence in Asia.

As a Canadian bank it works reasonably well. Given its back office system are all based on international way of doing things it has some things it does a little differently than the other banks. Use to be a customer years ago when I was in Saskatoon.
