People with Disabilities

We promote an inclusive environment for all by fostering respect, support and opportunities for every future.

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%.


Join our People with Disabilities Talent Community

While this process is customized for applicants that self-identify as People with Disabilities, self-identification is completely voluntary. We understand that many people are at different points of their cultural journey and we welcome all who feel comfortable highlighting their identity to our team. 


Our goal with this Talent Community is to find the right career path for you, based on your area of interest and skills.
