Bank of Nova Scotia expects more of its employees to return to the office in the months ahead, making it Canada’s second major lender to publicly say it’s aiming to reduce remote work for its staff.

“Scotiabank will be increasing its focus as of September on coming together for certain types of work where there are clear benefits to being there in-person,” the bank said in an emailed statement. “This includes collaborating with colleagues, meeting with clients, or work that must meet specific regulatory requirements.”
