Accounts have to be opened in Canada in person. Original photo id needs to be present before the accounts can be opened. Scotia allows customers in China to set up an account, deposit money into it, but they can't use it for withdrawals until they step into a branch in Canada and show id.

Harris (BMO in the US) , RBC (US) and TD (US) are owned by Canadian banks but fall under American law. They're completely separate banks that just happen to be Canadian owned.
