Royal Bank of Canada (NYSE: RY  ) has received approval from its home country's Competition Bureau to acquire Ally Financial's Canadian auto financing and deposit unit, and its associated assets. The bank had announced the acquisition of the unit last September in a $3.7 billion deal with the U.S.-based lender's main shareholder, the U.S. Treasury Department.
