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:
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.

Habitat for Humanity

Mississauga Food Bank
Annually we host the DS Charity Golf Classic at The Mississaugua Golf and Country Club. The proceeds of this event in 2015 and 2017 have raised over $50,000 for The Mississauga Food Bank which is the equivalent to 125,000 meals for those in need in our community.
The Mississauga Food Bank is the central food bank in Mississauga, Ontario, serving 2.5 million meals each year through our network of member agencies including neighbourhood food banks, breakfast clubs, hot meal programs, shelters, youth drop-ins and more!

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.
