As one of the key financial institutions in Sarnia-Lambton, Scotiabank, continues to make its mark in serving a variety of customers throughout the area, one key reason the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce has named it the Member of the Month.

A strong team locally is led by Matthew Smit, branch manager and mutual funds representative at the Northgate Shopping Centre.

When it comes to building value in the community, Scotiabank takes care to invest in the complete picture of the development of the next generation, recognizing what is possible when young people have the guidance, confidence, and tools they need to achieve their dreams.

It’s considered an investment in the long-term security, stability, and growth of the communities Scotiabank serves.

Scotiabank focuses on six areas where it can make a difference:

—Education (improve the quality and access to education);
—Family (provide resources and support to the family home);
—Mind (improve mental health and foster the development of positive behaviours);
—Body (improve physical health and encourage a healthy lifestyle);
—Living space (build a living space that is safe, resilient and toxin-free); AND
—Community (create a vibrant, inclusive and nurturing community).
