Community Matters

Diverse communities have diverse needs.

A strong community is made up of many different groups, each bringing unique perspectives that contribute to the fabric of Canadian culture and a strong economy. These include newcomers, Aboriginals and people with differing abilities or socio-economic backgrounds.

CIBC is committed to supporting organizations assisting Canadians in need by encouraging leadership, civic engagement and independent living; celebrating the diversity of our communities and encouraging the volunteer spirit of our employees.

United Way is one of our most significant community programs. Each year, our employees and retirees demonstrate their overwhelming support for local United Way agencies through fundraising efforts, personal donations and direct community engagement. In addition, CIBC invests in community programs to support skills development including financial literacy and employment opportunities, access to community services, equality and diversity.
