Our commitments in action

Advice for Indigenous communities

Whether it’s for personal banking, business banking, or for more complex Indigenous Trust and Investment services, we have specialized advisors that are ready to help you move forward.

Working at TD

We're focusing on attracting talent from the Indigenous community and educating our colleagues on the past and living history of Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

Working with Indigenous Communities

Through the TD Ready Commitment, we support initiatives that help promote financial education, encourage healthy living, protect the environment, and celebrate Indigenous Peoples art and culture.

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.

Showing support for Orange Shirt Day

Every year on September 30th, colleagues from across TD come together for #OrangeShirtDay to show support and to honour residential school survivors and their families. We hold a Bank-wide event for colleagues to learn about the history and impacts of residential schools within Canada. It's one way we encourage our collective journey towards Truth and Reconciliation.
