Women in Capital Markets (WCM) is accepting applications for the 2022 cohort of the Return to Bay Street (RTBS) program.

The program is in its twelfth year and has helped 92 senior professional women return to the financial industry after an absence. This year, the program has expanded beyond capital markets to include wealth management, technology, operations and compliance/regulatory.

The program is designed to increase the number of women in leadership roles in the financial sector by providing mid- to senior-level professional women the opportunity to resume their careers at the same level at which they left.

Successful candidates receive a paid work contract at an RTBS partner institution, an education grant, mentorship and a one-year WCM membership.

This year’s RTBS partner firms are BMO Capital Markets, BMO Wealth Management, CIBC, Mackenzie Investments, Manulife, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, RBC Capital Markets, Scotiabank Global Banking and Markets, TD Securities and TD Wealth.

Applications close on Monday, March 28.
