I'm interested in using some of the Canadian BTC exchanges however most (all?) of them require Interac transfers.  Canadian banks seem to be the only banks that support Interac transfers, and none of them will allow you to have an account unless you're Canadian.  Does anyone know either a way for a non-Canadian to get a Canadian bank account, know of any non-Canadian international banks that support Interac, or have any other idea of how to handle this situation?

It may not be possible due to "know your customer" laws. I recently opened a USD Canadian bank account and they wanted two peices of ID.

The big Canadian banks are:
