RBC Social Finance Initiative

RBC’s Social Finance initiative is designed to ignite the growth of social finance in Canada. The initiative supports and nurtures businesses that deliberately seek to make positive contributions to the community. The initiative demonstrates the opportunity to invest in businesses that deliver social, environmental and financial returns.

RBC’s Social Finance initiative includes:

  • Establishing the $10 million RBC Generator, a pool of capital to invest in for-profit businesses tackling social or environmental challenges.
  • Catalyzing the growth of social finance in Canada through strategic partnerships and thought leadership.
  • Investing at least $10 million of RBC Foundation assets in socially responsible investments.
  • Exploring additional business opportunities for RBC and our clients in social finance.
