Our Partnership with RBC Foundation

The RBC Foundation is Actua’s longest-standing corporate foundation partner, supporting the growth of Actua’s programs since 1995.

As a long-time supporter of Actua, RBC Foundation has invested in the ongoing skill development of vulnerable youth populations across Canada, including Indigenous youth, girls and young women and youth facing socio-economic challenges.

Our partnership has continued to evolve to meet the needs of target youth populations. RBC Future Launch, the RBC Foundation’s commitment to help empower Canadian youth for the jobs of tomorrow, has been supporting Actua’s Future Skills program since 2017. This investment is focused on the development of employability skills among Actua’s undergraduate-level instructors and high-school youth leaders.

“As digital and machine technology advances, the next generation of Canadians will need to be more adaptive, creative and collaborative, adding and refining skills to keep pace with a world of work undergoing profound change, That’s what RBC Future Launch is all about, and through our partnership with Actua, we hope to enable young people to identify, articulate and build their skills.”
