Our History: 150 Years of Innovation

National Bank is one of the top six systematically important banks in Canada. We are also the leading financial institution in Quebec and a major partner to small and medium-sized enterprises. We have branches in most Canadian provinces and serve clients in the United States, Europe and elsewhere around the world. National Bank has over 21,000 employees working tirelessly to help more than two million clients meet their financial goals and make their dreams a reality.

Making Clients Our Top Priority

Think of how people did their banking 20 years ago—or even 10—compared to today. Technology has drastically changed the way we live, and the banking industry has had to adapt to keep up. We continually innovate to meet the changing needs of our clients and adapt to today's increasingly competitive market, leveraging our expertise to offer clients simple, convenient products and services.

Our Culture and Values

Now more than ever, we understand that our employees provide the edge we need to stand out from the competition and respond to our clients' evolving needs. Our client-centred approach focuses on developing our practices based on three core values:

A Career in Marketing
  • Partnership: Trust-based relationships where interactions are warm and authentic.
  • Empowerment: Autonomous problem-solving, strong initiative and accountability in decision-making.
  • Agility: Openness and the ability to adapt to change. We aim for a flexible and creative approach that produces simple solutions.

A Dynamic Work Environment

We have many initiatives designed to keep our work environments on the cutting edge. We are continually improving our offices and branches to provide a better client experience and foster a culture of collaboration within our teams.

We have initiatives in place to develop our work methods and encourage employee collaboration, mobility and autonomy.

At National Bank, our employees demonstrate their professionalism through their attitude and the quality of their work. We encourage our employees to embrace their own style: suits and blazers for certain business functions, and a smart but relaxed dress code for most situations.

An Ongoing Conversation

A stimulating work environment and positive employee experience are key at National Bank. We make it a priority to listen to our employees, by using surveys that measure motivation and engagement. We also create programs to ensure a healthy work environment. We keep employees informed and answer their questions about our business vision and any changes underway. Every year, we create new initiatives to bring together employees from different levels of the organization.
