Scotiabank announced Sept. 28 a $600,000 donation to Indspire, Canada's largest Indigenous-led and Indigenous-focused charity, in support of First Nations, Inuit and Métis youth in Canada.

The bank says its donation will focus on financial and culturally relevant teaching, and access to networking, coaching and mentoring, in order to increase economic sustainability and prosperity, and ensure a smooth transition into post-secondary education and the work force.

"This new investment is a significant step in supporting First Nations, Inuit and Métis students to achieve their potential through education and training so they can in turn enrich their communities and create positive change in Canada," said Roberta Jamieson, President and CEO of Indspire.
