The Canadian Who Saved His Soul website has added The Canadian Western Bank Group (CW Bank) on its list of Canadian Financial Institutions being observed for corporate responsibility and community involvement. Though a relatively small player in Canadian banking, CW Bank is growing and is in a good position to leverage its smaller organizational and perhaps more flexible corporate culture and organization to become a leader in corporate innovation, social responsibility and community involvement.
CW Bank’s website has the tagline “We Work Hard. We Get Things Done.” Perhaps an indication of its western roots. They describe themselves as:
