Footprints in our communities
As a responsible bank and conscious of its role within the Canadian Society, BNP Paribas is consistently focused on respecting its environment and the needs expressed within local communities involved in the environmental, social and charity fields.
In the drive for empowerment and promotion, BNP Paribas in Canada supports many charity and volunteering projects. This year, around 130 employees jumped in the first volunteering program launched by the Canadian entity, helping 5 local organizations carry out their missions.
BNP Paribas is also proud to contribute to the dynamism and vitality of the Canadian social and educational system through targeted partnership with local or international organizations operating on Canadian territory, such as the Armand Frappier Institute (a member of the Pasteur Institute) or Red Cross. The latter also received support from the Group during the floods that hit Alberta on June 2013, while 10 Armand Frappier Institute’s students were allocated 10 grants to attend congresses of the International Union of Microbiological Societies.
