MONTREAL, Nov. 23, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is very pleased to be associated for a tenth year with the presentation of the Vision Trophies, which is being held today at the Capitole de Québec. This is a joint initiative of the Chartered Accountants of Québec City and the Québec City Chamber of Commerce aimed at recognizing the visionary talent of companies in the Greater Québec City area.
The partnership testifies to the strong and excellent relations between Laurentian Bank and a growing number of businesses in the Québec City and Chaudière-Appalaches regions. The entrepreneurship of local businesses serves as a veritable engine for the region's economic development, and Laurentian Bank fully understands this reality and offers personalized services tailored to the specific needs of each business.
