TD Bank Financial Group has signed-on as the presenting sponsor of the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal, beginning in 2010. TD takes over from General Motors as presenting sponsor of the festival. "We are so pleased that TD, a solid partner that we've been able to count on for many years, has become even more involved," said Alain Simard, president of the festival. "TD's role as presenting sponsor will support the festival in its continued growth and development. The expansion of the event is even more important now for our community, given current economic conditions."
