IG’s promise is to unleash the financial potential of all Canadians through greater financial literacy and comprehensive financial planning. We believe this translates into improved financial well-being and confidence, now and in the future. Our advisors offer financial planning, advice and related services to more than one million Canadians from coast to coast.
Our work with clients extends into our communities, where we strive to remove barriers to building financial confidence for youth, seniors, newcomers and Indigenous Peoples. In 2021, we delivered more than 80 virtual financial literacy workshops, reaching over 7,300 individuals. 2021 also marked the first official year of the IG Empower Your Tomorrow Indigenous Commitment, which will dedicate $5 million over five years to support programs and initiatives to further the financial confidence of Indigenous communities in Canada.
As a signatory of the Winnipeg Indigenous Accord, we are committed to our journey towards truth and reconciliation. In 2022 we launched 4 Seasons of Reconciliation education for all employees and Field members. We are proud of our long standing partnerships with the Downie Wenjack Fund and their Legacy Spaces program, and in 2023 we welcome new partners, including Indigenous Works who will support us in building a comprehensive indigenous strategy.
