Indigenous Banking Philosophy

CIBC engages a holistic, integrated process to building relationships with Indigenous communities. Adopting this approach helps us deliver products and services to meet the unique needs of the individual and community as a whole. As a valued client, your CIBC advisor will work with you to meet your personal and business financial goals.

Housing solutions designed for you

CIBC has designed a residential mortgage program for eligible First Nations people living on-reserve or Métis settlement residents in Alberta. Your CIBC advisor will work with you to identify the right housing solution to meet your needs.

Flexibility to fit your situation

In working with Indigenous communities, CIBC has developed products and services with distinct features to address specific financial issues, both on and off-reserve. Some factors we considered in building these products are:

  • tax and legal implications
  • adjustment of income
  • tax-exempt interest income in certain products in on-reserve branches - please consult your tax advisor for specific details1

Plan for a successful future

We created the Personal Financial Planning Course specifically for the Indigenous community, expanding on our ongoing support of Indigenous associations through sponsorships and donations. Designed to address real-life issues, concerns and goals, this course will help give you the information and tools you need to plan for a healthy and successful financial future.
