Elliot's story

“Through CIBC Miracle Day, my family is a direct recipient of people coming together towards one cause — helping kids. It feels good to be able to pursue a personal passion in my professional life.”

CIBC Miracle Day

  • CIBC Miracle Day takes place each year on the first Wednesday in December. Our CIBC Capital Markets team and CIBC Wood Gundy Investment Advisors give back to our communities by donating their fees and commissions to children’s charities.
  • This annual tradition of donating trading fees for kids-in-need has grown into one of the largest single-day corporate fundraising events in support of children's charities.
  • CIBC Miracle Day has raised over $95 million in Canada and $246 million globally since 1984. Proceeds from the day make miracles happen for kids-in-need 365 days a year.
  • CIBC Miracle Day is an example of the magic that can happen when our employees come together to rally around a common goal, common good.
