50 years of tenure at TD, one of the Best Workplaces in Canada


Anne Ethier when she began her career with TD, 1965

Last night TD Bank Group was recognized by The Great Place to Work Institute as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada for the eleventh straight year. We know that it’s our employees who champion our brand, uphold our unique culture and make TD an extraordinary place to work. That’s why we surprised Anne Ethier, one of the Bank’s longest tenured Canadian employees, with a trip to Toronto to accept the award at the Best Workplaces in Canada Awards Ceremony.

A Senior Operations Officer in Global Trade Finance Operations with TD Securities, Anne began her career in 1965 as a teller. Over the last 50 years, Anne has witnessed the Bank evolve to continually meet the unique needs of its customers and employees.

Anne’s admirable career provides a unique perspective of TD. We spoke with her about growth, opportunity and life at the Bank:

Congratulations on 50 years at TD! Tell us, what was your first role?

My father was an employee and encouraged me to work at his branch for the summer. I spent four years in the heart of Montreal’s ‘needle trade district.’ Every Thursday and Friday, we’d see long line-ups of clothing factory workers come in to cash their pay cheques!

What path led you to TD Securities?

In 1969, I was transferred to a commercial branch and after a few years of hard work, I became head teller. Six years later, I accepted the position of Assistant Supervisor of Foreign Exchange at that same branch – a big change, but one I was excited about! In 1980, I became the Supervisor of Foreign Exchange at our Montreal Head Office until 1996.

As the Bank began centralizing foreign exchange products, I transferred to Global Trade Finance to supervise the new Wire Payments Services (WPS) department for Quebec customers. Once the centralization project was complete, I took on the role of Assistant Supervisor of the Documentary Collections Department, where I am now.

Working at TD has shown me that where you start isn’t always where you’ll end up. There are so many opportunities and so much room to grow.

Why did you continue to grow your career at TD?

The Bank has undergone many changes, which makes for interesting and challenging work. When I retire this month, I can proudly reflect on my career and know with certainty that TD was never just a job. It was a gateway to incredible experiences, relationships, and memories that will always stay with me.

What inspires you to do great work every day?

Making a difference and challenging work motivates me. When you enjoy your job as much as I do, it’s easy to give it your all, every single day.

We wish Anne the best of luck and congratulate her on retirement later this month.

TD Celebrates National Volunteer Week

Each year in April, we dedicate one week to celebrating the incredible volunteer efforts of TD employees – but every single day we couldn’t be more proud. From cleaning up public spaces to welcoming refugees to providing meals for the less fortunate, these volunteers truly show us that one hour of your time can mean a world of change for someone else. On behalf of everyone at TD: thank you.

Here are some of the ways our TD Volunteers are making a difference:

Christine shares simple yet sage advice: everyone has something to give.

“People say they don’t have time to volunteer – but giving back to your community can take as little as 20 minutes. Everyone has something to give, and something to build within the community itself. This year I am volunteering through the United Way of Cambridge and North Dumfries supporting the Meals on Wheels Kitchen in Breslau. Meals on Wheels not only provides hot meals and nutrition, but volunteers just like me provide friendship and in some cases are the only personal interaction recipients of the program receive in days. ”

– Christine E. Andrews, Customer Relations Coordinator, TD Canada Trust


What you get from volunteering is more than you give. 

“TD is a company that encourages its employees to grow and explore the things that they love. I cannot stress how amazing the Volunteer Ambassador program at TD is.  Volunteering has shaped me in ways I cannot even begin to describe. The situations and people I come across have all taught me lessons and universal skills that I will always carry with me. I volunteer to learn from others, to educate myself on all that is going on around me, and most importantly to connect with people. There is a world of knowledge and experience out there – every time I volunteer my time, I grow.

I will be visiting Mountain View Elementary on April 16th to help out, serve food, and most importantly, welcome refugees. I really hope that I make an impact on even one of the individuals, whether it’s that they made a new friend or even just someone to talk to for the day. My main goal is to ensure that everyone feels safe, welcomed, and that they leave with a sense that their options and resources are not limited. ”

– Geety Hafizi, Financial Service Representative, TD Canada Trust

To really strengthen a community, start by helping the people a part of it.

“My name is Joey Calandrino and I am a Customer Service Representative at TD Canada Trust. I began my journey with TD in October 2015, and I have the dual honour and pleasure of being a Volunteer Ambassador.

To me, volunteering is such an amazing and rewarding activity. It’s an activity that builds and strengthens communities, is great for one’s mind and body, and allows everyone to learn new skills while having fun and helping others.

My challenge to everyone is to volunteer for at least one event through TD Volunteer Network in 2016. I can promise that you will meet amazing individuals, you will learn new skills, and you’ll have a fantastic time – all while benefiting and making a difference to your respective local communities. ”

– Joey Calandrino, Customer Service Representative, TD Canada Trust
