A Message from our CEO and President

Dave McKay

Diversity and growth are not just integrated, but inseparable. This belief is at the heart of RBC’s Value of “Diversity & Inclusion – We embrace diversity for innovation and growth.” For us, diversity has long been a gateway to the world and to success. At a time of both challenges and opportunities in the world, rather than turn inward, we believe that there’s a growing need to shine a light on diversity and inclusion.

— Dave McKay
