Vancouver City Savings Credit Union

Vancity is excited to be the first credit union in Canada to participate in the First Nations Market Housing Fund. This is another milestone in Vancity’s history of helping members to build financial self-sufficiency through home ownership. Vancity was the first financial institution in British Columbia to offer mortgages on the east side of Vancouver — and the first to offer mortgages to women without requiring a male co-signer.

Vancity is Canada’s largest credit union, with $27.4 billion in assets. Vancity serves the needs of its more than 534,000 member-owners and their communities in the unceded territories of the Coast Salish and Kwakwaka’wakw people, with 59 branches Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, Victoria, Squamish, and Alert Bay. Vancity uses its assets to help improve the financial well-being of its members while at the same time helping to develop healthy communities that are socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable.

“The Fund will allow Vancity to offer new financial solutions for on-reserve housing to the First Nations within our service area. We look forward to working with our local First Nations communities to make owning a home a reality for their members.
Shabir Amarshi, Vice President of Business Banking and the executive responsible for Vancity's work in Aboriginal communities (February 2009)
