People with Disabilities Talent Program

Advancing Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

An accessible workplace makes us all stronger.

At Scotiabank, the inclusion of people with visible and non-visible disabilities remains a priority for the long-term success of our Bank. We seek to develop an inclusive workplace by recruiting, developing, and advancing people of all abilities and promote an environment where every Scotiabanker has access to workplace resources and accommodations to reach their fullest potential.

Scotiabank's renewed diversity strategy focuses on underrepresented employees, with annual milestones set to reach its diversity and inclusion goals in Canada, which includes increasing the representation of People with Disabilities by 20%.
