Making a Difference in the Halton Community

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. – George Bernard Shaw

At RBC Dominion Securities, we know that "community" is something we all create. As individuals, families, businesses and partners, what we contribute to our community comes back to us, and enriches the lives of everyone in Burlington, Milton and the Halton region.

We are always involved in activities, events and causes that benefit the Halton Community, some of which are listed below.

Hike for Carpenter Hospice 

On May 25th, members of the Kuno Wealth Management Team, as well as our Branch Administrator Carolyn Stewart, participated in the Annual Hike for Carpenter Hospice held at Mountainside Recreation Centre.  The event itself raised over $118,000.00, including $6,170.00 raised by the Kuno Wealth Management Team! 

Riding for Mental Health Awareness

On Saturday May 25th, members of our Burlington Branch participated in the 14th Annual Spin the Lakes Cycle Tour, which raises funding for the Canadian Mental Health Association who provide education on mental health issues. We are thrilled that our Branch was able to provide a $5,000 donation for this event, and rode to an impressive combined total of 230km!

Shining a Light for the United Way 

 

On April 3rd, members of our United Way Committee were presented with an award at the Shining a Light Event to recognize our fundraising efforts, and support of the Halton chapter of the United Way.  We are grateful, and proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with an organization that exemplifies the definition of community support, and makes a tangible impact to enhance the quality of life for so many children,and families in Halton.  Many thanks to our staff, and leadership team for accepting this award on behalf of the Burlington branch!

International Women's Day 2019


In support of International Women's Day, our branch held a working breakfast to discuss what International Women's Day means to Dominion Securities, and what inclusion in the workplace looks like to us as a branch.  Our discussion was thoughtful, insightful, and mirrored the core values of RBC as a firm.  As part of a National Charitable Giving Program, we were delighted to provide a donation to The Halton Women's Place in the amount of $5,000 to assist with social programming for women in the Halton community. 

 

Carpenter Hospice

We’re proud to announce that on September 11, 2015, our team at RBC Dominion Securities’ Burlington Branch was honoured with the Margie Livingstone/Spyrou 2015 Recognition Award.

Presented by the Carpenter Hospice in Burlington, the award recognizes the nine years of support our branch has given to the hospice, which has included sponsoring the Margie Livingstone/Spyrou Charity Golf Tournament and serving on the planning committee, and opening up our homes to network with potential hospice supporters.

It has been a privilege to support the Carpenter Hospice, which provides individuals who are dying, and their families, with high quality palliative care in a home-like setting. We are honoured to work with such an important, caring organization, and we couldn’t be more proud to receive this award.
