Celebrating our Canadian roots and commitment to water
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada and the 10th year of the RBC Blue Water Project™, the Royal Bank of Canada Garden is inspired by the vast and ecologically vital boreal forest and freshwater lakes of Canada.
Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) is delighted to partner with Charlotte Harris, who leads an all-female design team to present the 2017 Royal Bank of Canada Garden at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
At RBC, we too recognise the significance of sustainable fresh water resources and through the RBC Blue Water Project, we are dedicated to protecting the world’s fresh water resources.
