About #Make150Count

To celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary, RBC is inspiring thousands of young Canadians to #Make150Count. We want to prove that when we invest in youth, great things happen.

How it works

RBC is giving $150 to thousands of young Canadians and challenging them to make a positive impact in their communities. How they use the money is up to them – there are no strings attached. All we’re asking is that they show us, through photos and videos, what they’ve done – and tell us how they will #Make150Count.

Why we’re doing this

Instead of looking back, we’re looking forward, to the people who will shape Canada’s future. We believe in the potential of young Canadians and want to empower them to act on their passions, hopes and ambitions – for themselves, for their communities and for Canada.

Our commitment to youth

RBC is committed to helping build stronger communities and encouraging positive social impact – which are important to our clients and our employees. RBC’s Canada 150 initiative is just one demonstration of our commitment to enable youth to make a lasting impact on their communities and country.
