HSBC expands commitment to education for Canada's most vulnerable and under-represented youth

September 28, 2017

HSBC Bank Canada (HSBC) is expanding its commitment to four leading Canadian charities – Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada, Indspire, Pathways to Education Canada and United Way – providing more than $11 million in funding by 2020 (2014-20). Together, they are providing wraparound support to Indigenous youth, as well as young people who are at-risk, in low-income communities, or involved in the child welfare system.

With programming delivered from coast to coast – including in Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City – the aim is to help more young Canadians achieve their educational goals and reach their full potential.

“Pathways helps students in every way possible – from financial help to emotional support. I always knew education was important, but being in Pathways made it so much easier to stay in school,” says Riely, Pathways Alumnus, Winnipeg. “They help people get out of their stereotypical views, and open their eyes to all of the possibilities in life. I love Pathways. It changed my life.” HSBC’s renewed commitment will also help fund Pathways Indigenous program development, supporting culturally appropriate programming to improve educational outcomes for Indigenous students.
