        Sunday:                   12 noon - 4 p.m.The branch is fully accessible and features five Automated Banking
Machines (ABMs), including two installed at wheelchair accessible height with
headphone jacks for audio access; grab bars for mobility assistance; and
brighter lighting. One of the ABMs also allows clients to withdraw US dollars.
    To mark the opening, CIBC is making a $25,000 donation to The Reena
Foundation, which is dedicated to enabling individuals with a developmental
disability to realize their full potential.

and expand over 70 branches by 2011. In addition to CIBC's convenient longer
