We are committed to supporting the growth 
and prosperity of our communities

An investment in the community is an investment in the future. By making strategic investments in the communities where we operate and partnering with local charities and initiatives, we aim to increase opportunities for growth and success.

Why it's important

Community investments can profoundly impact the overall growth and prosperity of a region — which directly benefits community members. By investing in the health & well-being and education of young people, we help more people gain economic freedom and increase chances for success.


An Inside Perspective with Darren Glazier

Director, Creditor Insurance Distribution, ScotiaLife Financial

Explain how you have helped Scotiabank's commitment to communities?

This year I had the opportunity to sit on a panel of judges for the National Enactus Youth Empowerment Challenge. Teams of university and college students identified a social issue that impacted the opportunities and needs of youth in the community. Then, each group came up with a viable business model to provide a solution to the problem and presented it to us. Every time our panel of Scotiabank judges heard a team presentation and saw the passion and preparation that went into each one, it left us in awe.
