CIBC – a leading Canadian-based global financial institution with over 38,000 employees worldwide – is a corporate citizen committed to supporting causes that matter to its clients, its employees and the many communities it serves. Within the framework of the "Power to Heal" Campaign, CIBC made a significant and lasting difference for our entire community by way of their generous and insightful donation towards the creation of the Segal Cancer Centre (SCC) at the Jewish General Hospital. “CIBC decided to fund the Jewish General Hospital not only because of its high quality health care and excellence in research and education, but also because the Segal Cancer Centre underscores its leadership and commitment to fighting, preventing and treating cancer," said Sylvain Vinet, CIBC's Senior Vice President of Retail Markets for Eastern Canada.
Today, the Segal Cancer Centre is among Canada's premier cancer research and care centres, providing cancer patients with the most comprehensive approach to care – combining cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, psychosocial support, nutritional support and clinical and fundamental research in cancer. It is also the only institution in Quebec to offer innovative programs which cater to the special needs of particular groups of cancer patients, such as the Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology Program, the Consultation Service for Senior Oncology Patients, and the Cancer Nutrition-Rehabilitation Program.
Today, more than ever, the Segal Cancer Centre is truly a vital asset and an invaluable institution for cancer patients and their loved ones from all over Montreal and Quebec – thanks to the unswerving support of deeply committed corporate citizens like CIBC. “CIBC is proud to join the Segal Cancer Centre in contributing to the health and well-being of those who live in our community," said Sylvain Vinet. The entire community is grateful for this life-affirming gift.
