Breaking into IB from Canada with only commercial banking exp.

Hello all, I am in second year and currently go to a Canadian University with hopes of attending its business school next year. This school offers an accelerated, 2 year undergraduate degree and is currently my best bet to being exposed to IB. The school has an insane Alumni network and is a place that many recruiters go to. However, after doing some research and looking around, I've found that there are some students who will be attending it next year that already have IB experience at relatively small, local firms. The most I can offer is being a bank teller at TD. How can I differentiate myself and make myself look appealing to recruiters? I'm not looking at getting to Wall Street right away, but that is probably the end goal, potentially through a transfer. I know I can get the grades required but at the end of the day nothing beats experience and a part of me feels like it's a little bit too late.

Ask your friends who work at these firms? I assume it's hard to get Ib internships when you're in BMOS or whatever
