Together, we share our success. Thank you.
We’re sharing 30% of our 2016 net profits with members and communities through our Shared Success program.
At Vancity, we put your deposits to good in our community and generate profits that we share through the Shared Success program. Vancity has shared over $305 million with members and communities through Shared Success since 1994, with over $173 million paid to members and $132 million given in grants to local community organizations.
We support organizations that focus on the three areas where we feel we can make the most impact in creating healthy communities: co-operative principles and practices, social justice and financial inclusion, and environmental sustainability. See a complete list of 2016 Shared Success recipients.
We also deposit bonuses, rebates and dividends directly into your accounts.

Note: Bonuses and rebates in your Shared Success Patronage account, and dividends in your Class B Membership Shares account are considered interest income by Canada Revenue Agency and will be included in your T5 for the year 2017.
For this year only:
We’re paying in two portions, as the payments are based on both the old banking system and the new banking system which was implemented in November 2016.
- The first deposit is based on your account activity from January to October 2016, and was made in March 2017.
- The second deposit is based on the remaining 2 months, November to December 2016, and will be made on or after June 30, 2017. This is because we need a bit more time to prepare the payments based on your account activity in the new banking system. We’ll remind you when the payment is made.
In both cases, the payment is calculated the same way. Together, we'll be paying out 100% of the Shared Success program.
Note the Shared Success Invest Bonus related to Credential and VCIM will be paid in late March in full.
We're sharing $9.9 million with the community
Shared Success is a critical way for us to support organizations that are strengthening our communities. Shared Success assists hundreds of these organizations to deliver initiatives aligned with our guiding principles for building healthy communities: co-operative practices flourishing, environmental sustainability, and social justice and financial inclusion.
