Morning Coffee – By Aaron Hall
In celebration of Earth Day on April 22, Scotiabank is proud to announce it is having over 30 Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations installed at select Scotiabank branches across Ontario.
The stations will be available in locations including, Arnprior, Burlington, Cambridge, Carleton Place, Elliot Lake, Etobicoke, Kenora, King City, Lindsay, Listowel, London, Mattawa, Markham, Mississauga, Ottawa, Owen Sound, Pembroke, Penetanguishene, Russell, Simcoe, Smith Falls, Spanish, Stoney Creek, Thunder Bay, Timmins, Waterloo and right here in Wallaceburg.
“We believe every customer has the right to become better off,” said Terri Williams, Vice President, Corporate Social Responsibility at Scotiabank. “For those making an effort to create a healthier environment by driving electric vehicles, we are happy to support them by offering charging stations at Scotiabank locations.”
Some of the 2017 electric cars from Chevrolet and Tesla will be coming to the King St. entrance of Scotia Plaza in Toronto, April 20-21. Torontonians will be able to learn about the latest technology in electric cars ahead of Earth Day.
Scotiabank is proud to offer its EcoLiving Auto Loan Program, which provides preferential financing for the purchase of electric, hybrid and clean diesel vehicles.
Scotiabank donates $10 to the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) for every loan booked through the program. Since the program launched in 2012, it has raised over $100,000 in donations for conservation stewardship in Canada. The donations support NCC’s Conservation Volunteers program, which invites Canadians of all ages to participate in hands-on conservation activities.

A quick reminder as well, the Soctiabank branch in Wallaceburg is also now open on Saturday’s.
