The RBC Indigenous Peoples Development Program enables recent graduates to develop the skills and network needed to build their professional experience. The program is specifically designed for candidates who self-identify as Indigenous/Aboriginal (First Nations, Inuit, Metis) peoples of Canada.
Take part in a 2-year rotational program that offers you the opportunity to gain exposure to different aspects of business through four assignments. Three assignments will be within the chosen business area and one unique rotation working with an Indigenous community organization which will allow you to give back while applying your skills.
My favourite part about working for RBC is the sheer amount of opportunity available. This ranges from career growth, volunteering, workshops, and symposiums that cover a wide range of interests. No matter what your educational background is, there is always the potential for improvement at RBC. A career mentor from RBC Royal Eagles provided additional guidance that helped inaugurate me into the RBC community.Jake Karasin Associate, Indigenous Peoples Development Program
Completing a work term in a non-profit was an aspect of the program that was really appealing to me when applying for jobs, and something that separated it from other new graduate opportunities. Overall, my time spent working in a non-profit was a great experience – not only did I get to support such meaningful work and meet so many passionate people, but I was also able to learn new skills that I took back with me to RBC.Dylan Allary Associate, Indigenous Peoples Development Program
Over the past 4 months I had the opportunity to step outside of my role as an analyst at RBC and worked with an external charity. Not only did this opportunity allow me to leverage my quantitative skillset and give back to the organization, it directly aligns with our mission at RBC of helping our clients and communities prosper. I am proud to be in a program that values social impact as highly as business performance.Austin Lee Associate, Indigenous Peoples Development Program
The Indigenous Peoples Development Program is tailored to my interests and ensures I have the right resources I need to begin my career journey. The unique rotational program has given me exposure to different areas within the bank. Throughout this program, I have received the mentoring and education needed to develop my career.Danielle Wisen Associate, Indigenous Peoples Development Program
