Put your money where

everyone is welcome.

Fourteen Vancouverites signed a charter in September 1946 to start an open-bond credit union where all are welcome.

Inclusion continues to be Vancity’s cornerstone.

Vancity was the first bank or credit union in Canada to lend to women without requiring a man to cosign the loan. It was also the first to provide mortgage lending to the working class and immigrant families living east of Cambie Street in Vancouver.

Make sense of money.

Basic financial skills provide independence and support resilient communities. Vancity offers financial literacy workshops for everyone.

Not everyone has the same definition of wealth and financial resilience. It's why Wealth Mindset was created by and for Indigenous people.

Bounce back from tough times.

Vancity is committed to helping members through tough times, including unexpected expenses, avoiding eviction or recovering from financial hardships.

Whether you need trusted advice to plan for tomorrow or a helping hand today, we’re here.

Equity and access to finance.

Essential financial services such as a basic bank account or loans is something most of us take for granted. Many people don’t have easy and affordable access to these services. The result is limited economic opportunities and often financial hardship for some members of society.

We believe we have a responsibility—and the tools—to help. When more people have fair access to finance, it helps support the diversity in Canada’s economy and strengthens our communities.
