Working with Indigenous Peoples

At TD, we recognize there is more work to be done on our collective journey towards Truth and Reconciliation. That's why, we’re supporting community initiatives that promote a connection to the land, enhance financial literacy, and foster a sense of belonging. We believe society is stronger when we work together, and we can help be a catalyst for dialogue to bring people, communities, and cultures together.

Celebrating Indigenous culture at TD Park Royal

In 2019, we opened the TD Park Royal branch in West Vancouver, BC. Located on the unceded traditional territory of the Squamish Nation, this branch is designed with input from local communities, including the TD Indigenous Banking Group.

At this branch, we’re proud to celebrate the heritage, history, and culture of Indigenous Peoples through art that tells their stories and that brings issues of displacement, race, gender, and identity to the forefront. We hope you’ll enjoy the works on this site.

Together Towards Truth and Reconciliation

Respect. We support programs that are focused on respect for the land through forest restoration and programs seeking to advance climate change adaptation.
