Every year, IG supports over 800 charities by encouraging and empowering over 2,100 employees and 3,700 advisors to volunteer through various programs, initiatives, and offerings. Inspiring the financial confidence of Canadians is IG’s vison and the basis for our commitment to building communities.

IG Empower Your Tomorrow

IG Wealth Management is committed to building strong communities across Canada. We believe this starts with Canadians feeling confident about their finances so they can achieve their goals. The IG Empower Your Tomorrow program gives Canadians the resources and confidence they need to own their financial future.

With the help of our annual Financial Confidence Index, an annual report designed to inform how Canadians feel about their finances and where support is needed most, we’ve identified a real opportunity to increase the financial education of Canadians. Four key groups that stand to benefit the most from financial guidance include Indigenous peoples, newcomers, seniors and youth. By working with community partners and organizations – along with our employees and clients – we’re building confidence where it counts.

2020 Mid-Year IG Financial Confidence Index

We released a mid-year update of our annual IG Financial Confidence Index, in partnership with Ipsos Canada, which shows that Canadians are demonstrating resilience despite the impact COVID-19 has had on the economy and financial markets. While it appears we may be emerging from the worst of the crisis, we don’t know what the future holds and therefore shouldn’t get complacent when it comes to safeguarding our health – or our personal finances.

Interest Groups

As part of our mission to make all Canadians financially confident, we’re committed to supporting communities through seminars, events and programs to help create a better financial future for those who will benefit the most: Indigenous peoples, newcomers, seniors and youth.

Indigenous peoples

Indigenous peoples are a vital part of our country’s culture, yet many face unique barriers to financial wellness on a daily basis.

It’s crucial that we set Indigenous families up for a financially successful future. Our Indigenous population represents the country’s First Peoples and the fastest growing segment of Canada’s population. We’ve partnered with organizations such as Opportunities for Employment to provide both financial education and job training to Indigenous peoples and we also fund scholarships for Indigenous students at both the local and national level with organizations like Indspire.

I learned about the many resources available in Winnipeg to help us manage our money, and find support when we are in financial trouble. Now that I am working, I can share my knowledge with my coworkers and in my community.

Newcomers

Newcomers are an integral part of our growing country, but many of them have financial goals that feel unreachable.

Learning the financial systems of a new country can be daunting, which is why we work with the Canadian Foundation of Economic Education (CFEE) to provide financial education in their first language.

We have also partnered with United Way to offer financial literacy programs in communities large and small. Partners for more than 50 years, $20 million have been contributed to communities across Canada.

IG’s ongoing commitment empowers thousands of Canadians through valuable asset building, job skills and money management programs and services.

Seniors

The seniors, parents and grandparents of our communities often face unique financial challenges that come with age.

That’s why we offer support through financial planning workshops designed to guide seniors through financial considerations in collaboration with our national partners including the Alzheimer Society of Canada. IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s is the largest annual fundraiser for the Alzheimer Society. It supports vital programs and services offered free-of-charge to the millions of Canadians impacted by the disease.

In the face of one of the most challenging health issues of our times, we are proud to partner with an organization that shares our commitment to making a difference in the lives of Canadians living with dementia.

Youth

Our future teachers, caregivers, business leaders and professionals need to start off on the right financial foot.

Education is the most important tool we can give our youth. With the help of the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE), we’ve distributed more than half a million Money and Youth textbooks to students across the nation and hosted thousands of students at workshops.

Through various initiatives over several years, we’ve been able to work with IG and impact the financial education curriculum in provinces across Canada and improve the ability of hundreds of thousands of Canadians to better undertake their financial decisions.

Our National Partners

IG Wealth Management and Mackenzie Investments have pledged to donate 1% of our pre-tax revenue to charities across the country, as designated Imagine Canada Caring Companies.
We proudly sponsor the Money and Youth Guide to Financial Literacy resource, developed in partnership with the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE). This free digital and hard copy book helps youth acquire the tools and understanding needed to complete financial responsibilities and decisions with confidence and competence. To date, over 500,000 copies of the book have been distributed. In addition to offering financial literacy workshops across the country to seniors and newcomers to Canada, IG is also a sponsor of the Globe and Mail Classroom Edition, a digital publication providing educators and youth with financial education articles, lesson plans and research reports.
We are the first national title sponsor of the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada. This is the largest fundraising initiative for the Alzheimer Society, with nearly 300 walks per year raising funds across Canada to help families living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. IG is also delivering free financial empowerment seminars to individuals and families impacted by the disease to aid in long term planning.
For more than 50 years, we’ve been working with United Way to make a positive impact on local communities. Our IG Empower Your Tomorrow Annual Giving Campaign provides all IG Wealth Management employees the opportunity to join together to give back. Through this, we help United Way supported agencies deliver financial literacy resources and education to community members who are underserved in this area.
