National Bank donates $3,500 to the Association de hockey mineur de Candiac

Montreal, 16 May 2007 -

Employees of the National Bank branch in Candiac were pleased to present a cheque for $3,500 to the Association de hockey mineur de Candiac. The funds were raised through a contest launched in December in honour of the branch’s opening.

The donation, which was made on May 15 during a cocktail reception to inaugurate the new branch, will enable the association to buy new equipment for young hockey players in the region.

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.

More information on the many causes and projects the Bank supports as part of its commitment to the communities it serves can be found in the Bank’s Social Responsibility Report on its website at www.nbc.ca.
