RBC encourages Canadians to live healthier lives by offering RBC Rewards points through the Carrot Rewards app

TORONTO, June 14, 2018 /CNW/ - Today Carrot Rewards announced that Canadians can now earn RBC Rewards points when they invest in their wellness by learning how to live healthier, and by achieving daily step goals with the Carrot Rewards app.

"Joining hands with one of our country's largest banks provides us with a terrific opportunity to accelerate our shared vision to make a positive impact on the everyday lifestyles of Canadians," said Andreas Souvaliotis, Chief Executive Officer, Carrot Rewards. "Adding RBC Rewards to the menu of choices on the Carrot Rewards app will further boost our platform's unique relevance and popularity."

According to the Public Health Agency of Canada's recent report, How Healthy Are Canadians?1, more than 77% of Canadian adults and nearly 91% of children and youth are not meeting the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines.

"That's why we're investing in a range of innovative relationships with organizations like Carrot. We understand the importance of well-being in our clients' lives, and in 2017, we committed more than $15 million to health and wellness programs in Canada."
