Scotiabank has launched a new digital mortgage platform that modernizes how Canadians can get a mortgage.

With Scotiabank eHOME, Canadians can complete the entire mortgage application process online, track the application status through real-time updates, and complete the closing with a lawyer without requiring an in-person appointment with a mortgage specialist or financial advisor.

"This is a huge milestone in driving forward Scotiabank's digital transformation strategy," said James O'Sullivan, Scotiabank’s group head of Canadian banking. "We are committed to investing in technology that delivers thoughtful solutions for our customers."

“We've built Scotiabank eHOME with a laser-focus on what our customers said they want in an ideal mortgage experience," said Janet Boyle, Scotiabank’s senior vice president of real estate secured lending. "It's simplicity, security, transparency in the process, and the ultimate convenience to apply anytime, anywhere, on any device.”

Scotiabank has more than 25 million customers in the Americas. The bank has a team of more than 98,000 employees and assets of over $1 trillion as of Jan. 31.
