Making an impact one step at a time
IG Wealth Management is proud to support the Alzheimer Society of Canada through the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, a coast-to-coast fundraising effort to help find a cure for dementia.
In 2019, thousands of IG employees, Consultants, clients, friends and families joined an IG team in their local community, and their participation in the more than 400 walks helped raise a record-breaking $6.25-million to help fund programs, services and support for those living with dementia, their families and caregivers.

IG believes in taking the lead when it comes to making a difference. “The walks have become a very powerful tool for raising money and awareness, two things we know are critical to success when it comes to finding a cure for dementia,” says VP Corporate & Community Engagement at IG, Court Elliott.
“We’re seeing more and more people participating, donating and reaching out to friends and family to join a walk and to raise money for the Alzheimer Society. It gives us big hope for 2020,” says Mr. Elliott.
Sharing our knowledge
As part of the IG Empower Your Tomorrow commitment to financial education, IG Wealth Management Consultants, in partnership with the Alzheimer Society, are offering free local seminars for caregivers and families.
These one-hour Financial Confidence Workshops focus on key areas of financial planning and what to consider when dealing with a long-term disease. The goal is to give participants greater confidence to manage their finances and know where to turn for advice and support.
There is no cure for dementia. Increased funding and awareness is needed to support the researchers working to find answers on behalf of the millions of people affected by this condition. Getting involved is easy.
