Looks like RBC Bank USA (US division of RBC) offers a free checking account:

If you open an account with RBC in Canada, you should then be able to get them to open an account with the US branch. Canadian banks aren't allowed to prevent you from opening a basic bank account due to your past credit history, although they can put restrictions down (eg all deposits are held for 5 business days). And once you have a RBC (Canadian) bank account for a bit and are responsible with it, I can't see why they wouldn't open a US one for you.
