CanadaVisa and Scotiabank are pleased to host a new webinar called Secure a Financially Fit Future in Canada.
The webinar is taking place November 24 at 9 AM Eastern Time.
What will I learn?
Now that you are planning to arrive in Canada as a newcomer, your success needs to be a top priority. This webinar will help you understand banking basics, settlement tips and tricks, and how to leverage newcomer support services to help you transition into your new home.
You will also learn about the types of financial institutions and bank accounts in Canada and how to choose the right banking partner for your financial needs.
Since Canada is a credit-based economy, you’ll need to know how to build your credit here and how credit scores work. This webinar will also guide you to leverage settlement agencies and bridging programs that can help make your existing skills transferable to the Canadian job market. Lastly, we will introduce you to ScotiaRISE, Scotiabank’s 10-year, $500 million initiative to promote economic resilience among disadvantaged groups by helping you feel at home faster.
Join Justin Lee, a Senior Financial Advisor at Scotiabank as he takes you through the basics of banking and finances in Canada. Justin will also be on hand to answer your questions, so please feel free to email them to us after you register, or simply submit them during the live webinar!

Launched in 2008, the Scotiabank StartRight Program is designed to simplify banking for Canadian Permanent residents, International Students and Foreign Workers who have recently landed in Canada. We can help ease your transition to Canada by getting you started with a Scotiabank International Account that allows you to transfer up to $50,000 before you arrive to help you feel more prepared knowing you have proof of funds ready. We can even help fast track your study permit with the Scotiabank Student GIC Program.
Our Scotiabank StartRight program can also help you start banking in Canada with 12 months of free banking, access to credit with no credit history, unlimited no-fee international money transfers, and expert help from Financial Advisors.
We also launched ScotiaRISE – our new, 10-year, $500 million community investment program designed to help promote economic resilience among disadvantaged people and communities. In particular, the program is centred on using funding and partnerships to increase graduation rates and postsecondary enrolment, help newcomers feel at home faster and secure meaningful employment and senior opportunities for underrepresented groups. It’s all part of why Scotiabank is the bank for newcomers.
