Making a difference in our community

A leading corporate citizen that helps clients thrive and communities prosper.

 

Our corporate citizenship strategy puts communities at the centre of what we do. In 2021, through the RBC Foundation, RBC Dominion Securities provided $3.8 million in donations to over 700 charitable organizations in communities where we have a business presence.

RBC employees and retirees did their share through the organization’s first-ever global Employee Giving Campaign in 2021. Together, they acted as agents of social change, raising nearly $22 million for 9,500+ charities.

Investing in Canadian youth

We’re bringing young people together with community leaders, and partners across the private and public sectors, to help them prepare for the future of work. That commitment began in 2017 with RBC Future Launch, and the investment of $500 million over 10 years.

Financial Literacy

In the coming years and decades, it’s estimated that approximately $400 billion will be passed down to inheritors in Canada. With this in mind, we are strengthening our focus on younger generations. The Wealth Management Financial Literacy program, designed for individuals 16 years of age and older, will allow advisor teams to educate their clients, families, and communities.

National Community Initiatives

RBC Dominion Securities branches across the country support our national community partners through their volunteer efforts. Last year, we supported Dress for Success, Canada Food Banks, Canadian Mental Health Association (chapters all across Canada), Women’s Brain Health Initiative, Calgary Seniors' Resource Society, Ducks Unlimited, and Tree Canada. This is in addition to the many community organizations that our advisors support through their own personal giving.

We believe that creating positive social impact is absolutely integral to everything we do. It is fundamental to our philosophy and at the very heart of our approach to corporate giving.
