Scotiabank is 'Schedule I Banks' in Canada. In Canada, the Schedule I Banks are defined as banks that are allowed to take deposits, and are not subsidiaries of a foreign bank. Therefore, Schedule I Banks are the true Canadian banks, as the financial institution must be established within Canada to be considered a Schedule I bank which may be eligible for deposit insurance provided by the Canadian Deposit Insurance Corporation.
