Montreal, 30 April 2010 -

National Bank Financial Group is proud to announce that it has received a Solidaire award from Centraide of Greater Montreal in the Overall Support category in recognition of its exceptional contribution to the annual fundraising campaign. National Bank Financial Group’s 2009 Centraide campaign raised $1,677,758 for Centraide of Greater Montreal.

“Our annual Centraide campaign is a huge operation made possible, not only thanks to everyone’s generosity, but also by the efforts and hard work of the Bank’s many volunteers who canvassed their colleagues and demonstrated their creativity and ingenuity in organizing numerous fundraising activities. There is no doubt that this honour belongs, first and foremost, to our employees,” said Louis Vachon, President and Chief Executive Officer of National Bank Financial Group.

Through its donations and sponsorships program and the initiatives of its employees, National Bank Financial Group helps support hundreds of organizations across Canada. It focuses primarily on four main areas of activity— health, education, arts and culture, and community outreach—with the goal of generating positive benefits for communities.
