    TORONTO, Sept. 27 /CNW/ - TD Canada Trust's award winning Internet

Banks" competition by Global Finance, an international financial magazine.

"Best Investment Management Services," "Best Web Site Design," "Best
Information Security Initiatives," and "Best Online Deposits Acquisition." The
award results will be formally announced in the September 2007 issue of the

    "We're extremely proud to be named as Best Consumer Internet Bank in
Canada for the fourth year in a row," said Alexandra Shaw, Vice President,
Internet Banking, TD Canada Trust. "We regularly review our website and listen
to what our customers are telling us, to ensure that we continue to meet their
needs. We also stay up-to-date with technology trends to ensure our website
offers our customers the products and services they are looking for."

    
    TD Canada Trust's EasyWeb was chosen among other entries based on a
    number of criteria including:

    -   Strength of strategy for attracting and servicing online customers;
    -   Success in number of online customers;
    -   Breadth of product offerings;
    -   Evidence of tangible benefits gained from Internet initiatives and
    -   Web site design and functionality

was the first Canadian bank to offer a free anti-phishing tool to its
customers through Norton Confidence Online," said Shaw. "Customers are telling
us they are feeling more and more confident and secure so much so that this
year alone, we've had about 1 million people sign up for online banking."
