Diversity in all its forms

We all have something unique about us that sets us apart from the pack. Our organization is richer for these differences. The collaboration of all our employees leads to innovative ideas and solutions to organizational challenges.

At National Bank, promoting diversity means more than merely complying with the Employment Equity Act, which targets four specific groups (i.e., women, persons with disabilities, visible minorities and Aboriginal peoples). At the Bank, we seek to showcase a wide range of talents and skills, particularly in terms of age groups, cultural backgrounds, and sexual identity and orientation.
