Montreal, 26 January 2007 -

National Bank is pleased to support the City of Clarence-Rockland, Ontario in its “Building the heart of our community” fundraising campaign with a $25,000 donation.

The Bank’s contribution will enable the municipality to build a recreational and cultural centre to meet the needs of its growing population and foster cultural exchanges.

National Bank and the City of Clarence-Rockland share a common interest in the community’s well-being. With the new centre, hundreds of students will have everyday access to a gym, pool, sports centre, auditorium and library, all under one roof.

In 2006, the Bank and its subsidiaries, through corporate donations, sponsorships, in-branch fundraising activities and various benefit events, gave $19.5 million to hundreds of Canadian education, health care, cultural and community organizations.
