TD Bank Group: Leveraging Music Programs

TD Bank Group, the leading financial customer service provider, has a longstanding commitment to bringing music to Canadians through the TD Music program. For the 10th anniversary, in 2013, TD Music approached NKPR to develop an integrated communications plan that would showcase TD as “The Bank of Music” throughout the year with media and consumers.


To drive media and consumer awareness of TD’s commitment to music.


  • Created “For the Love of Music”, a free concert event which took place on Valentine’s day at the TD tower and featured performances by rising stars including Jully Black, Karl Wolfe, Devin Cuddy, Eva Avila and Kai and leveraged the concert with broadcast coverage including Breakfast Television, CTV News, eTalk News, E! Channel News, NOW Magazine and OMNI Culture
  • Developed the TD MUSIC Green Room, an exclusive destination space for talent, industry professionals, media and influencers to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience and special performance lineup, including both established and emerging acts, courtesy of TD and secured sponsors including Kiehl’s Since 1851, Stella & Dot, Wiser’s Whiskey, MAC Cosmetics, Tweezerman, DAVIDsTEA, Holt Renfrew and more.
  • Supported TD Community Grants with PR engagement and feature coverage
  • Developed the TD Music VIP program – a program that has become the best practice to engage local bloggers and influencers to share their experiences with followers, reinforcing TD’s commitment to music.
  • Managed and leveraged partner relationships (LiveNation, Junos, Jazz Festivals, MusiCounts, JUNOs) to maximize results for the TD Music program.


  • The TD Music Green Room has grown into an annual event that takes place during the JUNOS and has been used as an example of best practices within TD Bank Group
  • In 2016, over 150 guests visited the TD Music Green Room which included Andy Kim, Jonathan Roy, Ria Mae, Wes Mack, Kardinal Offishal, Kevin Drew, SonReal, DRU, and media including eTalk, CTV, CBC and Dress to Kill
