Our commitment to corporate responsibility extends from our vision and values and is integrated into our operations and business practices.

We recognize that the long-term success and viability of our business is closely linked to the confidence and trust our clients and stakeholders have in our bank.

Our framework is based on our economic, environmental, social and governance (EESG) commitments and focuses on:

  • providing accessible and affordable banking to Canadians;
  • advancing the goals of small business;
  • creating an environment where all employees can reach their full potential;
  • making a real difference in our communities where we live and work; and
  • protecting our environment.
