Business Community
We're committed to helping Indigenous communities become fully involved Canada's economy. That's why Scotiabank is a member of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business, where we hold the Gold level for Progressive Aboriginal Relations.

Scotiabank is dedicated to the advancement and education of Indigenous youth and adults. We proudly support Indigenous students with educational initiatives and youth entrepreneurship programs.

We are happy to be part of your community and are proud to demonstrate our commitment to you through progressive sponsorships.
