These measures include:

- Deferred payments on personal loans
- Deferred payments of principal and interest on personal mortgage loans

"Regions in New Brunswick and Quebec are in difficulty.

We're in the process of contacting them and invite those who have not been contacted yet to get in touch with us if necessary. The Bank is very present and involved in Atlantic Canada and Quebec. We’re here to help those communities," stated Lucie Blanchet, Executive Vice-President, Distribution Strategy, Retail and Commercial at National Bank.
