New branch design


Good Money gives great ideas the space to grow

We’ve redesigned our branches to become places where people gather, values are shared and we build community. Places where we offer savvy financial service and advice by meeting the needs of members. It is more than a new look, it’s a new way to do business. One of Vancity’s strengths has always been our ability to help members thrive financially as we build vibrant communities together. This approach is at the heart of sustainable banking and our philosophy of making you good money by putting money to good, and our new branch redesign helps us achieve this.

What's different about our new branches?

Alongside the financial expertise, community vibe, and helpful personality you find in every Vancity branch, there are now tangible elements in our branches that will help great things happen.

Which branches have this new design?

Currently, there are six Vancity community branches with these new design elements. To book The Community Stage, please visit or call the branch directly:
