Young Women in Business Toronto is incredibly grateful to have aligned with a sponsor who recognizes our mission. We thank you, Tangerine, for your on-going financial support, encouragement and use of your physical space as a venue for our events.
YWiB provides a central forum to connect ambitious young women from across educational fields, careers, and industries. Tangerine is conscious of the fact that we are a new chapter development and still establishing ourselves as a go to source for recent graduates and professionals looking to network with others. They provide the resources necessary for us to succeed, whether we are pursuing entry-level or higher jobs, or striving to become successful and money-savvy entrepreneurs.
Tangerine is a direct bank that delivers simplified everyday banking to Canadians. With over 2 million Clients and close to $38 billion in total assets, we are Canada's leading direct bank. Tangerine offers banking that is flexible and accessible, products and services that are innovative, fair fees, and award-winning Client service. From no-fee daily chequing and high-interest savings accounts, Credit Card, GICs, RSPs, TFSAs, mortgages and mutual funds through its subsidiary, Tangerine Investment Funds Ltd., Tangerine has the everyday banking products Canadians need. With over 1,000 employees in Canada, our presence extends beyond our website and Mobile Banking app to our Café locations, Pop-Up locations, Kiosks and 24/7 Contact Centres.
