    The Honourable Jim Flaherty presents award to ICICI Bank Canada at
    Fairmont Royal York

    TORONTO, April 9 /CNW/ - ICICI Bank Canada will be honoured for their
long-standing support and sponsorship of the Canadian Helen Keller Centre
(CHKC) at a luncheon at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel today. The award will be
presented by The Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance for the
Government of Canada.
    "ICICI Bank Canada is delighted to be associated with the Canadian Helen
Keller Centre and receive this award today," said Sriram H. Iyer, President
and CEO of ICICI Bank Canada. "It makes us particularly proud to have our bank
commended for its charitable work as we have always been committed to
supporting Canadian communities. I have had the honour of visiting the Centre
and I have seen, firsthand, the training it provides to people with sight and
hearing challenges. It is truly remarkable what these individuals are able to
accomplish with the help of the Centre."
    CHKC is the only residential training centre in Canada for people who
have become Deaf-Blind. Their services help people develop alternate ways to
care for themselves, their families and their homes. In addition, they
facilitate connections to peers and the community through the development of
alternative forms of communication, computing and through self-advocacy and
peer support.
    "We are delighted to recognize ICICI Bank Canada for their outstanding
contribution in support of people who are Deaf-Blind," said Vim Kochhar,
Founding Chair of CHKC. "The assistance of sponsors like ICICI Bank Canada
allows us to provide skills for daily living and advocate on behalf of the
Deaf-Blind community."
