Jay-Ann Gilfoy

CEO Vancity Community Investment Bank


Jay-Ann joined Vancity Community Investment Bank as CEO in early 2017 after nearly four years in senior leadership roles at Vancity credit union, most recently as senior vice-president of digital solutions and business technology.

Vancity Community Investment Bank is a subsidiary of Vancity credit union. The bank’s mandate is to bring Vancity’s unique business model to the rest of Canada, working to ensure money is being put to good use for organizations doing good for their communities. Jay-Ann leads the start-up of this initiative in the Greater Toronto region in Ontario, a natural place for the mandate to come alive given the environmental, social and community change going on there.

While at Vancity, Jay-Ann led the development and implementation of a new core banking system, the first milestone of the credit union’s technology road map and a foundational element in the organization's commitment to better serve its members. She also provided strategic oversight to digital literacy, core technology infrastructure, technology solutions, digital products and fin-tech partnerships working on the strategy to connect financial services and impact onto a digital platform.

Originally from Toronto, Jay-Ann brings more than 20 years’ experience as a senior executive. She draws on a wealth of transformation and change management expertise from previous roles in Crown, private and municipal organizations including the B.C. Lottery Corporation and Coast Capital Savings.
