Royal Bank of Canada Garden
Celebrating the importance of water
Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) is delighted to partner once again with Hugo Bugg, one of Britain’s most acclaimed young designers, to present the 2016 Royal Bank of Canada Garden at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Our garden uses bold, geometric forms to symbolise and celebrate the power and importance of water. At RBC, we too recognise the significance of sustainable fresh water resources and through the RBC Blue Water Project™ are dedicated to protecting it.

Since 2007, RBC has pledged nearly C$44 million to more than 740 charitable organizations worldwide that protect watersheds and promote access to clean drinking water, with an additional C$8.8 million pledged to universities for water programmes.
