It appears the bank regulators have struck.
Indicates that Online Banking Booster (the Intuit name for  
DirectConnect in Canada) was discontinued for all Canadian banks at  
the end of October 2008. The banks have apparently all added  
additional security questions at login that quicken can't handle, so  
Intuit just bailed.

In the US, Intuit has pushed the use of an additional token  
(CLIENTUID) as suitable for satisfying regulator's insistence on  
multifactor authentication. It remains to be seen how well that rolls  

With the advent of no directconnect, the best you can do is download  
transactions manually from the bank's web site and then import that  
OFX/QFX file using File>Import>Import OFX/QFX.
