Scotia Place is an office tower complex in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada that was completed in 1983. It is located at 10060 Jasper Avenue in the heart of Downtown Edmonton. It is home to several long term tenants such as Grant Thornton, APEGGA, Ernst & Young, Duncan Craig LLP and Edmonton Transit. The namesake of the complex is Scotiabank.

The tallest tower in the complex is Scotia 1, with 28 floors reaching 113 m (371 ft). Followed by Scotia 2, with 21 floors reaching 88 m (289 ft).


Edmonton's extensive Pedway system allows downtown visitors to travel indoors to avoid the extreme weather. Scotia Place is part of that pedway which is linked directly to both the Edmonton LRT system, Commerce Place, and Enbridge Centre.
