Description:
The Bank of Upper Canada Building, built by John Ewart, is one of the oldest financial service buildings in Toronto, Canada. Built in 1825, it housed the Bank of Upper Canada until the bank's collapse in 1866. It is at 252 Adelaide Street East.

The building was abandoned, later used as a meat processing plant, then damaged by a fire. It was also home to a Catholic boys school, and De LaSalle Institute.

During the 1837 rebellion, William Lyon Mackenzie and the Reformers marched down Yonge Street to attack this building and steal the gold stored within - unsuccessfully.

The building is now home to Harbinger Communications, which moved into the building in May 2002.
