BC & Yukon


Scotiabank contributed more than $1.2 million to community organizations in the province during the past year, through corporate donations. Over and above our support, local staff continue to make significant contributions to a variety of causes. The following are some highlights:

Our gift of $15,000, payable over two years, to the Université Laval in support of the Fonds Simone-et-Marcel-Bélanger capital fund, will provide scholarships to students in the Faculty of Science and Administration.

Health Care
Scotiabank is participating in Fondation Charles-Bruneau’s capital campaign to further develop and expand cancer care for children in Quebec. Our gift of $50,000 over three years will assist in the development of specialized care premises and medical equipment, as well as promote and support research and bone marrow transplants.

Social Services
Scotiabank is proud to support the community’s most needy through a $25,000 gift to the Salvation Army’s Quebec Division. Our commitment will assist the Salvation Army to expand and improve its services in Quebec and continue to meet the complex and interconnected needs of its clients.

The Old Brewery Mission serves as the last recourse for assistance with food and shelter for homeless people in Montreal. Our gift of $20,000 will help maintain the existing facilities and aid with the recent expansion of the women’s shelter.

Arts & Culture
For the second straight year, the Bank has provided $15,000 to enable underprivileged children to attend a Christmas performance of Les Grands Ballets Canadiennes.
