MONTREAL, May 17, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - National Bank is proudly renewing
its partnership in 2013 with Aires Libres for three additional years.
This union, which began in 2010, is just one more example of how the
Bank plays a part in making our society more inclusive.
"National Bank is pleased to showcase diverse talents and profiles, and
this can be seen through our partnership with Aires Libres, our
inclusive human resources practices and our engagement in the
community. All these complementary activities and aspects bring great
wealth to our organization," said Lise-Anne Amyot, Vice-President -

National Bank will once again have a strong presence at this artistic
event, which this year runs from May 13 to September 6. The Aire Banque Nationale, which is located at St-Catherine East and Wolfe, features the art
installation Trous de mémoire, an original creation designed by the Paprika studio. The new events
featured this year include an art contest, and the winner's artwork
will be displayed in our Aire in 2014. Lastly, a special mention goes to the brightly-coloured urban
makeovers given to locations by Montreal artist Dominique Pétrin.
Visitors are invited to discover a part of her spectacular art at the
National Bank branch in Place Dupuis, at the corner of St-Catherine
East and St-Hubert, as of May 20.
