One of the best Diversity Employers

At National Bank, we value the unique strengths and skills of each of our employees, and leverage this diversity to build a strong, talented team. At National Bank, diversity is a daily way of life, as evidenced by our being named one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers¹ for several years running.

A real commitment

We are fully committed to being an inclusive organization where employees of any age, sex, cultural background, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity are accepted. Over the years, we have developed inclusiveness programs aiming to integrate members of 5 groups:

  • Visible minorities
  • Women
  • Persons with disabilities
  • Aboriginal persons
  • Members of the LGBTQ+ community

Together, our employees represent some 70 countries and speak 50 languages. The most frequently spoken languages are French, English, Spanish, Arabic, Italian and Portuguese.

This cultural diversity is most certainly a benefit for our clients and an invaluable asset for our organization!

Value - added initiatives

Working together for progress

We have reaffirmed our commitment to this issue by creating a taskforce of executives working to promote diversity. The group designs initiatives to allow the different sectors at the Bank to keep receiving support.

To ensure an inclusive workplace, as a complement to our corporate culture, we adopt a policy of measures to prevent discrimination.
