At Scotiabank Jamaica, community involvement is not something we just talk about. It is an important part of the way we live, work and do business every day which led us to establish the Scotiabank Jamaica Foundation in 1996 and the Scotiabank Jamaica Volunteers programme in 2005.
Scotiabank through its network of branches across Jamaica maintains an intimate relationship with its customers at the community level. This commitment is reflected in the involvement of many of our employees in community service as well as participation in social, cultural and sporting activities.
