Building for the future
For nearly 40 years, Sibos has brought financial leaders together to network, collaborate and make sense of changes in the industry. The Sibos conference helps to build an understanding of the forces impacting the financial community.
Our chosen charity for Sibos 2017 was SKETCH.
SKETCH is an arts-based community enterprise in Toronto that engages young people from across Canada who are living homeless or on the margins.
SKETCH works with youth to develop in the arts so that they can lead in building creative communities, and build their entrepreneurial spirit and future.
Throughout Sibos week, the bridge that connects the MTCC's North and South Buildings hosted the Sibos Art Gallery, which featured unique artworks by the SKETCH artists.
