CIBC announces $100,000 donation to assist victims of flooding in Alberta 
CALGARY, June 21, 2013 /CNW/ - CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) announced today it is 
donating $100,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to help relief efforts following 
the severe flooding in Alberta. 
"We are all devastated by the severity of the flood and the damage it has 
created. The people of southern Alberta need our help and assistance as they 
recover from this disaster," said Jim Prentice, Senior Executive 
Vice-President and Vice Chairman, CIBC. "We are joining our clients and 
employees as well as others across Canada in supporting the Canadian Red Cross 
relief efforts to provide for the needs of so many who have been affected."
