MONTREAL, Sept. 23, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is pleased to be
serving as a major partner once again in the Montréal Architectural
Heritage Campaign (MAHC). This marks the third year that the Bank is
associating with this event dedicated to recognizing the efforts of the
city's citizens to preserve and showcase their rich heritage. In fact,
five prestigious Heritage Special Awards and 40 Emeritus Awards are
being presented today to pay tribute to these Montréal Island
residential and business property owners.
The fundamental purpose of the MAHC is to promote public recognition of
the remarkable richness of Montréal's architectural heritage. In that
regard, this initiative is also intended to inspire owners to keep
their properties well maintained and to renovate with respect for the
original architectural characteristics of every building.
"It is a great pleasure for us at Laurentian Bank to be partnering in an
event that spotlights the successful efforts of property owners,"
underlines Gladys Caron, the Bank's Vice-President of Public Affairs,
Communications and Investor Relations. "Thanks to the MAHC initiative
and the enthusiasm of all its participants, quality workmanship is
being sustained. We at Laurentian Bank certainly share this pride and
welcome the efforts of these people of passion."
Under the banner of the Heritage Open House Days to be held in October,
a team of mortgage experts from Laurentian Bank will be on hand at
several of the Montréal heritage homes to be featured. Thus, visitors
will have an opportunity to obtain answers to any questions they may
have, as well as to be guided through the mortgage process.
