The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) has honoured an Edo State indigene, Tracey Osevwe with the ‘Atlantic Diversity Award’ for her role in settling Nigerian immigrants in Canada.



The awardee, a Financial Advisor at RBC, was honoured for collaborating with the Canadian Refugee and Immigration Council and the Nigerian Canadian Association to offer English language training, financial advice and help immigrants settle into their new homes and communities.

Osevwe, a finance professional with many years of experience in banking advisory, was recently announced as the 2020 recipient of the award, joining the league of other Edo sons and daughters in the Diaspora who are putting the state on the world map for good.

In a video, Chris Ronald, the Regional President, Atlantic (Canada) at RBC noted: “Tracey Osevwe has a natural passion for helping others, especially newcomers. She has volunteered with the Canadian Refugee and Immigration Council and the Nigeria Canadian Association to offer English language training, financial advice and help people settle into their new homes and new communities. She is a voice for change and progression”

With her support and in line with RBC’s value of diversity in inclusion, the organisation recently announced specific actions to address longstanding institutional inequalities and social injustices against Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC).

Osevwe is a graduate of the University of Benin (UNIBEN).
