Scotiabank Women Initiative

The Scotiabank Women Initiative is prioritizing equality by making change happen for women entrepreneurs. We launched the program on December 5, 2018, and on September 25, 2019, the program announced it will allocate $3 billion in funding to women-led business in Canada over its first three years.

The Scotiabank Women Initiative is a comprehensive program helping women take their business to the next level through access to capital, mentorship from senior business leaders and education tailored to their needs. It is about empowering women; challenging stereotypes, and addressing unconscious biases that are too often associated with women’s entrepreneurial leadership.
