People of Colour

We’re dedicated to being an ally to people of colour year-round. As a company, we are committed to promoting and advancing inclusion and diversity for every future.

Advancing Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

Scotiabank continues to work together with our communities to remove barriers, increase opportunities, and improve representation. We are committed to fostering an inclusive workplace, free of discrimination.

We recognize that building a more diverse workforce enables us to become a better bank and a stronger partner in our communities. While our work to build a truly inclusive organization is never complete, we are committed to combatting racism and discrimination of all forms to enable better futures for its employees, customers and communities at large.

Scotiabank's renewed diversity strategy focuses on equity deserving groups, with annual milestones set to reach its Diversity and Inclusion goals in Canada, which include increasing visible minorities in senior leadership roles to 30 per cent or greater. We remain more committed than ever to empowering inclusion and opportunity, for every future.
