We are Vancity Community Investment Bank,

Our Vision

To finance a sustainable tomorrow.

Our Mission

To use the tools of finance to drive immediate and lasting social and environmental change in our communities.

Our Change

Our Values


Do what’s right.
Sleep well at night.


We are conscious of being
part of something more.


Nothing to hide here.

Respect for People

Every person, and their dreams,


Cherish, protect
and pass it forward.


The courage to dream.
The dedication to make it real.

Respect for Place

Invest in here and here will
get there.


Together we will.
