The Township of Whitewater Region and account holders of the Beachburg Scotiabank Branch were informed earlier this month of the impending closure of the branch effective June 2020. Access to banking services is essential to the community.
According to local historians, the roots of the branch date back to 1873 and the founding of the Bank of Ottawa, which later amalgamated with the Bank of Nova Scotia in 1919.
The community is asked to share its concerns with the bank directly by calling 1-888-722-3970.
A community survey and town hall are planned with more info to come.
