Making a Difference

We believe—passionately—in being full and active participants in our community and in community development. Our collective efforts and having "Our Community" as one of our core values resulted in our Peel Region office being named the 2015 National Community Commitment Award Winner for RBC Wealth Management - Dominion Securities. We support the following causes:


Mississauga Food Bank

Imagine a Mississauga where no one goes hungry

The Mississauga Food Bank is the central food bank in Mississauga. They distribute food through a network of over 40 agencies including: local food banks, pantries, meal and snack programs, and other emergency food programs.

Even during the best of times, neighbours living with a low-income struggle to afford all of their necessities. Emergencies—like the COVID-19 pandemic—put unimaginable stress on already tight budgets.

During this difficult time, The Mississauga Food Bank is working hard to ensure those living in poverty or whose financial circumstances have abruptly changed
can access healthy and nutritious food.

As a branch, the Peel Region offices of RBC Dominion Securities came together to host a virtual food drive over Thanksgiving weekend to support the Mississauga Food bank and successfully raised $2500. Our gift will make it possible for The Mississauga Food Bank to distribute emergency bags, consisting of non–perishable goods, fresh food and produce, personal care items, and essentials like baby formula, and diapers.

It is one small way that we can support our local community during this challenging time.

The Hospital for Sick Children

Each year in June we enter a dragon boat in the Mississauga Dragon Boat Festival with all proceeds going to the Hospital For Sick Children. Each year at the festival we have been the top fundraising team, raising over $25,000 to date.

The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), affiliated with the University of Toronto, is Canada’s most research-intensive hospital and the largest centre dedicated to improving children’s health in the country. As innovators in child health, SickKids improves the health of children by integrating care, research and teaching.

United Way

Each year we are one of the top branches in terms of employee participation for the United Way Employee Giving Campaign.

Every day, staff and volunteers at United Way Centraide are hard at work in local communities across Canada. Locally and nationally, our goal is the same: to create opportunities for a better life for everyone in our communities.

Our new mission, called our Community Impact mission, captures the essence of what we do: We improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.
