Celebrating the Arts

Investing in the arts is a long-standing priority at RBC Capital Markets. We believe the arts play an important role in building vibrant communities and strong economies. We support organizations and artists across a range of genres – including music, visual arts, theatre and film – to help enrich our communities, promote cross-cultural exchange of ideas, and develop talent among emerging artists.


RBC is committed to promoting and investing in the arts, recognizing the integral role it plays in local communities. As Principal Partner of The Old Vic, RBC enables this iconic theatre in London to deliver more daring, ambitious productions than ever before and celebrates the theatre’s historical Canadian links – the late Canadian businessman and philanthropist Ed Mirvish saved the theatre in 1982.


RBC Capital Markets is proud to champion the medium of film and its unique ability to bring audiences together and transcend cultural differences. Our partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), considered one of the most important global film festivals, allows RBC to share, educate and inspire our community with films from Canada and around the globe.


An appreciation for the artistic and technical aspects of music can positively impact our communities. Our partnership with the GRAMMY Museum® helps to celebrate artistic legends of the past and present, while inspiring future generations of music professionals. Our support of GRAMMY® in the Schools brings the positive influences of music and music education into local public schools, showing young people the myriad of opportunities music can provide for their futures.

Visual Arts

We believe that promoting an appreciation of visual arts as well as advancing the careers of emerging artists is critical. We are proud to partner with a variety of organizations around the globe that enrich our communities through visual arts. This includes our relationship with Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), one of the most distinguished art museums in North America. With its vast body of Canadian and international works, the AGO offers an incredible art experience for all patrons.
