Marginal note:Obligation of widely held bank holding company
879.1 (1) Despite subsection 879(1), if a widely held bank holding company with equity of eight billion dollars or more controls a bank in respect of which that subsection does not apply by reason of subsection 879(2) and the equity of the bank reaches two hundred and fifty million dollars or more or any other amount that is prescribed and on the day the equity of the bank reaches two hundred and fifty million dollars or more or the prescribed amount, as the case may be, a person is a major shareholder of the bank or of any entity that also controls the bank, the widely held bank holding company must do all things necessary to ensure that, on the day that is three years after that day,
(a) the widely held bank holding company no longer controls the bank; or
(b) the bank or the entity that controls the bank does not have any major shareholder other than the widely held bank holding company or any entity that the widely held bank holding company controls.
(2) If general market conditions so warrant and the Minister is satisfied that the widely held bank holding company has used its best efforts to be in compliance with subsection (1) on the required day, the Minister may specify a later day as the day from and after which it must comply with that subsection.
