Investing in Canadians
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. Inspiring the financial confidence of Canadians is IG’s vision and the basis for our commitment to building communities.

Our community investment
IG Wealth Management has been sharing its financial expertise with Canadians for more than 90 years. During that time, IG has contributed over $100 million in support to the communities where we live, work and play. 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.
The Dream Team
In the fall of 2021, the Empower Your Tomorrow program premiered The Dream Team across Canada. Led by Dragons' Den's Manjit Minhas, The Dream Team shared their knowledge and expertise, supporting some of Canada’s most promising entrepreneurs on their quest to find financial confidence. Meeting with Indigenous peoples, newcomers, seniors and youth, the team mentored participants, helping them overcome challenges and reach their dreams.
Catching up with The Dream Team
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. By working with community partners– along with our employees and clients – we’re building confidence where it counts.
IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s
There are more than 600,000 Canadians living with dementia today and that number is expected to double in just 10 years. IG is a proud national partner of the Alzheimer Society and the national sponsor for the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s which is the largest fundraising event for the Alzheimer Society.
2022 IG Wealth Management Financial Confidence Index
The IG Financial Confidence Index tracks and reports on Canadians' overall financial confidence by examining IG’s Four Pillars of Financial Confidence: Personal Financial Outlook, Planning and Literacy, Trust in the Economy and Current Financial Situation.
The 2022 edition found that Canadians are generally feeling comfortable with their personal financial situation. However, their overall financial confidence has fallen 6 points (from 57 in 2021 to 51 this year) largely due to a lack of trust in where the markets and overall economy could be headed in the months ahead and concerns about rising inflation and interest rates.
Among IG’s four priority community groups, Indigenous Canadians’ confidence rose 1 point this year (though this group continues to sit below the national average), while Seniors and Newcomers to Canada fell 6 and 4 points respectively, confirming why we continue to focus on helping to build financial confidence among these groups.
