Scotiabank 'recognises requirements for multicultural immigration'
Scotiabank has said it recognises the needs that come with multicultural immigration and is planning to work with Indian bank HDFC to reach out to those thinking of Canadian immigration. The bank, which claims to be "Canada's most international bank", hosted an event celebrating the multicultural communities in Greater Toronto Area yesterday (June 19th).
"Scotiabank has a long history of supporting and reaching out to Canada's multicultural communities, but we recognise that in order to continue to succeed and better serve these communities we need to continually enhance our capabilities," commented Rick Waugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Bank. He added that the bank will be in a better position to address the needs of its customers with the creation of a special division within the organisation to focus on its work with multicultural communities. This comes after a new immigration law aimed at cutting down the backlog of applications came into force in Canada earlier this week.
Canada needs skilled workers: anyone interested in migrating to Canada should complete an online assessment to see if they qualify for skilled migration to Canada.
