It's not every day that we launch a chequing account, so we wanted to make this announcement to Canadians in a big way. What better than a surprise synchronized swimming team performance in a public fountain? Watch as our THRiVE Chequing Synchro Team help Berczy Park visitors take back their fees...and THRiVE!
