MONTREAL, July 18 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is pleased to announce
that it has partnered with the Festival d'Orient. This cultural event,
presented for its second year running given last year's success, brings
together the various cultural communities to create long-lasting ties between
them. Once again this year, the Festival d'Orient will be held at
4375 Boulevard Henri-Bourassa West (between O'Brien and Marcel-Laurin),
Montreal; anyone interested in the multicultural activities and shows are
welcome to attend from July 18 to 20.
In addition to sponsoring this festive and multicultural community event,
Laurentian Bank will propose different activities at its booth set up on the

contest for the chance to win a bag full of surprises from Laurentian Bank for
the entire family.

the Festival d'Orient, are in line with the Bank's family-children
