TORONTO, May 5, 2022 – RF Capital Group Inc. (TSX: RCG) is proud to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary Richardson Wealth Limited (Richardson Wealth) has made a multi-year financial commitment to the Centre of Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Foundation. Now, as part of CAMH’s Business Leaders for Mental Health Action, Richardson Wealth is prioritizing the psychological health and wellbeing of its employees and helping create change across corporate Canada.
“We are committed to doing the right thing at Richardson Wealth. By championing a culture of belonging, we ensure everyone has a voice,” says Kish Kapoor, President and CEO. “This enables us to think and act with great empathy and compassion. It also helps us elevate wellness among our people — our company’s greatest assets.”
“We are proud to join a coalition of leaders who, like us, deeply value the importance of employees’ mental wellbeing,” says Michael Williams, SVP, Chief Risk Officer. “Richardson Wealth’s commitment to championing mental health is linked to our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
