Scotiabank in Belize

As Canada’s most international bank, Scotiabank has been operating in Belize since 1968. Today we operate 11 branches across the country and offer a complete range of retail and commercial banking services — including online banking and electronic cash management.

Scotiabank opened its first branch in Belize City in December, 1968. Retail banking expanded in the 1970s and 1980s, with the addition of three more branches. Activity in the branches in Belize reflected the economic growth of the country and was heavily centered on the agricultural industry. Business continued to grow during the late 1990s and, by 2008, 11 branches had been established.

With 11 branches throughout the country, Scotiabank offers a complete range of retail and commercial banking, including electronic cash management. The Bank has about 187 employees, plus 18 ATMs countrywide.

We’re a strong supporter of various community initiatives and our charitable contributions range from sports programmes and education to arts and culture.
