The Bank of Nova Scotia in Nipawin recognized Canada’s Ag Day with a special in-branch display this week.

Branch manager Travis Loblaw said the agriculture sector is very important to the community of Nipawin and the surrounding area. He said over 50 per cent of their customers are involved in agriculture in some form.

“I think in most of rural Saskatchewan, there’s an understanding that without strong support in the ag sector, a lot of our communities wouldn’t thrive. We realize we can support our communities by supporting the ag sector itself,” he said.

The Nipawin Scotiabank team set up a display in the branch that included contributions from local businesses and organizations. Loblaw said they wanted to showcase different aspects of agriculture.
