At National Bank, our commitment to social responsibility draws its strength from people. We aim to make a positive impact on people's lives by building lasting relationships with our clients, our employees and the community. In 2018, we took a number of measures to strengthen our commitment and make sure it responds to the changing needs of our society.
President and Chief Executive Officer
As an important economic player in Quebec and Canada since 1859, National Bank aims to foster the development of the communities it serves.
The Bank achieves this goal through a well-defined donations and sponsorships program, the commitment of its employees and retirees who are volunteers in their communities, as well as successful fundraising efforts with our clients' participation.
Since 2014, through its innovative bond program, National Bank has been helping the First Nations Finance Authority (FNFA) make over $500 million available to indigenous communities to help them develop community and economic infrastructures.
Thanks to our donation and sponsorship program, we were able to finance universal access to specialized mental health care and fund the development of leading-edge research in the field.
In addition, our collection of more than 7,500 original works of art helps us directly support artists across the country.
We actively support women, cultural communities and the LGBTQ+ community through various partnerships.
We also feature in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index and Canada's Best Diversity Employers.
