National Bank Recognized as One of the Best Employers for New Canadians 
MONTREAL, March 12, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - National Bank is proud to have made 
the list of Best Employer for New Canadians, which recognizes employers who 
offer interesting programs to assist new Canadians in making the transition to 
a new workplace and a new life in Canada. 
"At National Bank, promoting diversity is part of our day-to-day reality, and 
has been for many years. In fact, some of the diversity-oriented programs we 
offer were developed more than two decades ago," stated Evelyne Bundock, 
Vice-President - Talent Management at National Bank. "The Bank fosters an 
inclusive work climate by continually adapting its practices and creating new 
initiatives." 
As the main banking institution in Quebec, National Bank contributes to the 
economic integration of recent immigrants in several ways. For example, the 
Bank offers all its employees a variety of training and communications 
initiatives to make sure that they understand the importance of diversity and 
inclusion in its corporate culture. The Bank has also established partnerships 
with immigrant-support organizations to provide information not only about 
employment opportunities with the Bank, but also about the realities of the 
Canadian labour market. Lastly, the Bank has an internal sponsorship program 
for onboarding new employees from different cultural communities. 
Our strong commitment to diversity is recognized through numerous awards and 
distinctions, including the diversity award from the Jeune Chambre de commerce 
haïtienne de Montréal in 2010 and three nominations as Canada's Best 
Diversity Employers.
