Scotiabank customers in High River who do their banking in person will have to travel to Okotoks starting in mid-May.

The branch in High River will be closing in the spring of 2024.

Scotiabank declined an interview but sent us an email that says, "After careful consideration we have made the difficult decision to consolidate our Scotiabank branch in High River and relocate our in-person services to our branch in Okotoks on May 16, 2024."

The statement goes on to say, "We are committed to supporting our customers and employees through the transition and will continue sharing further details directly with customers who are impacted by these changes."
