What “One for change” means

It takes only one person to make a difference. But it takes a certain kind of person: someone passionate, resourceful and tenacious. For people like this, giving back is personal. It comes from the heart. And when they get together, great things happen. These are the people who make up the CIBC team. Together, their changes make our communities better.


Here’s how Team CIBC is making a difference

Tammy Wood, CIBC employee

“I stepped up my participation in the CIBC Run for the Cure in memory of my CIBC colleague and dear friend, Niki, who passed away from breast cancer.”

Sean Hynes, CIBC employee

“It's shocking to learn how everyone has a cancer story of their own. Having seen close friends and colleagues affected, it came time for me to take action. That's why I participate in the Ride to Conquer Cancer.”

Kevin Bull, CIBC employee

“I am proud to be a part of Camp Rainbow Phoenix where LGBT+ kids come to escape judgement and harassment and feel good about who they are.” 

Manon Normandeau, CIBC employee

“I believe in and participate in Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau. Over the years, I have seen first-hand the difference it has on improving the survival rate of kids living with cancer.”

Tara Hawes, CIBC employee

“‘Mommy, my heart hurts.’ Those 4 words changed my life. Six years ago, my 4-year-old daughter was brought to BC Children’s Hospital from our home on Vancouver Island – her heart racing at 250 beats per minute.”
