Voting

Why should I vote?

As a member, you have the right to vote. Make your vote count – it’s a simple and effective way for you to be involved with your credit union.

What does my vote do?

Your vote allows you to choose candidates you think will best influence the direction Vancity will take, impact how Vancity meets your financial needs and support how Vancity invests in the community.



Your vote ensures that Vancity continues to have thoughtful, brave leaders who focus on people and values, rather than profit alone.

When do I vote?

The Board of Directors’ Election takes place every Spring. Keep an eye out for updates throughout the year such as key dates, a list of candidates, frequently-asked questions or instructions on how/where to vote.

Concerned about the environment? So are we...

Carbon neutral since 2008, we’re now trying to be equally diligent about the amount of paper we mail to our members, especially at election time. For the past two years, we have invited members to choose to receive a basic election package and approximately 8,000 members took part.

In 2016, we made a change to the amount of election related mail we are sending out.

A member who voted at least once, in‑branch or by mail, in the last four years, and who did not request a basic election package in 2014 or 2015 will receive a complete election package containing:

  • a mail ballot
  • an Election Bulletin
  • condensed financial statements

(Approximately 6 pages per envelope)

All other members will receive by mail only that information required by law:

  • notice of Election and AGM
  • condensed financial statements

(1 page per envelope)
