    VANCOUVER, Jan. 31 /CNW/ - Today, CIBC (CM: TSX;NYSE) opens the doors to
a new 3,500 square-foot full service branch at the northeast corner of
Helmcken Street and Homer Street in Yaletown. This new branch is CIBC's first
location to open in Yaletown and CIBC's 54th full service branch in Greater
Vancouver.
    "CIBC's new location in Yaletown will allow us to better serve our
clients and demonstrates our commitment to meeting the financial needs of this
