Nineteen eighty-two marks the 150th anniversary of Scotiabank. Written to commemorate this event, The Scotiabank Story examines the history of the Bank as part of the larger history of Nova Scotia, the Maritimes, Canada, and, ultimately, the world financial community. "The Bank was granted a charter in Nova Scotia on March 30,1832, and on August 29,1832, The Bank of Nova Scotia opened for business in rented rooms in a stone house in Halifax. The Bank grew and surmounted difficulties associated with the economic problems of the Maritime provinces.Later its growth accelerated through directt expansion and amalgamation wi th the Union Bank of Prince Edward Island, the Bank of New Brunswick, the Metropolitan Bank, and the Bank of Ottawa. By 1919 it had become the fourth-largest bank in Canada, a rank that has never been challenged since. The Scotiabank Story recounts the events and developments in the Bank's history through the actions and views of the leading participants. Entertaining anecdotes interspersed throughout the book serve to lighten the history and lend a human touch to this success story. "The Bank of Nova Scotia is the second-oldest Canadian bank, with a more than usually interesting past, with more than its share of great bankers, with unbroken dividend payments from the beginning, and with a record of solid achievement - $50 billion worth. During its history, a remarkable degree of diversification in the Bank has been accomplished - both geographically and in terms of the wide variety of wholesale and retail banking and other financial services available. The Scotiabank Story is an important contribution to banking, corporate, and Canadian history. Selected photographs, largely drawn from the Bank's Archives, increase the book's attractiveness and enhance beautifully the lucid prose of Joseph Schull and J. Douglas Gibson.
