“The Scotiabank StartRight Program allowed us to transfer our funds to Canada smoothly and without any tension.”


Names: Abha, Lalit and Araj Kapoor


Country of origin: India


Year of arrival in Canada: 2012


Why we are Scotiabank customers: The Kapoors came to Canada for a better quality of life. In Delhi, Lalit was manager at a three-star hotel. Before leaving her job to be a stay-at-home mom, Abha worked in the insurance sector for a business processing office. While planning the move, the topic of the funds they needed to bring to Canada and the issue of how to travel with large sums of money came up. Their immigration agent told them of the Scotiabank StartRight® Program. “It was truly fantastic,” said Abha. “We were able to complete the paperwork at a Scotiabank branch in Delhi and transfer the funds before we left India. We just had to activate the account upon landing in Canada. We were able to move the major bulk of our money safely. The ease of operation really appealed to us. After our arrival in Canada, we also got a credit card and were able to start building our credit history.”


The overall experience was really good: The Kapoors say they recommend the Scotiabank StartRight Program. to newcomers and to anyone thinking of moving to Canada. “When we shifted our account to another branch, again the process was smooth. We will get our mortgage through Scotiabank when we buy our first home in Canada!”
