ADaPT and RBC 

ADaPT was pleased to partner with RBC Campus Recruitment to provide training to RBC co-op students. This partnership was mentioned in a Globe & Mail article, external link.

“The ADaPT Program is a great opportunity for our students to gain insight and knowledge into different areas outside their current skill sets. The program helps them bridge the gap between university and work experience to further diversify their capabilities. The skills that students gain enable them to apply their knowledge in everyday practical solutions, which broadens their approach to work at RBC.” - Eily Hickson, Manager, Transformation Management Office, RBC
