TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - September 10, 2015) - Today, Scotiabank and General Motors of Canada have launched the new Scotiabank® GM®* VISA* Cards, marking the expansion of a strategic partnership with a suite of credit cards designed to put customers in the driver's seat of their choice of a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac.

"Scotiabank is proud to offer our customers some of the richest credit card rewards in the Canadian marketplace and today's launch continues to set us apart," said James O'Sullivan, Group Head of Canadian Banking at Scotiabank. "The new Scotiabank GM VISA Cards are another opportunity to provide our customers with unique reward offerings and get Canadians even closer to the purchase of their first car, family car or dream car."

"GM Canada is excited to bring the new Scotiabank GM Visa Card to Canadians and enable them to earn their way far more quickly to one of the most important purchases in their lives," said Stephen Carlisle, President and Managing Director, General Motors of Canada. "With the Scotiabank GM Visa in their pocket, our customers will be several steps closer to owning their next new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac -- they could even earn enough points to cover their next vehicle purchase outright."
