Scotiabank and Home Hardware have teamed up to launch the new Scotia® Home Hardware PRO Visa* Business Card designed to support entrepreneurs in the trades and construction industry to better manage and expand their business.

Scotiabank and Home Hardware are raising the bar for small businesses by offering rewards in the marketplace through the Scene+ loyalty program, with features including a competitive variable interest rateii, no annual fee, a 21-day interest-free grace period on new purchases, and credit limits up to $500,000, enabling them to invest more in their growing businesses.
