150 Years intro

Since our origins in 1855, we've grown from a single-branch bank serving grain millers and merchants to a major financial services company providing financial solutions to individuals and businesses around the world. We're proud of our accomplishments and the things that make us unique: our emphasis on customers; our leadership in technology and community involvement; our strong, diverse team of employees; and our role supporting Canada and generations of Canadians.

We've planned many ways to help us mark our 150th year in 2005, including:

  • Customer and employee appreciation activities.
  • A partnership with Canada Post to issue a unique commemorative stamp.
  • Sponsoring an exciting online atlas created by The Royal Canadian Geographical Society and the Society's magazines, Canadian Geographic in English and g√©ographica in French.
  • A celebratory tour of our company's comprehensive Inuit Art Collection, which was first assembled by the Bank to mark the country's centennial in 1967 and raise awareness of both Inuit artists and the Canadian north.

While we've come a long way over the past century and a half, we've maintained a dedication to satisfying customers, employees, shareholders, and our communities. Inspired by our history and a vision of being the better bank, we look forward to a strong future.
