Shared Success

This year we’re sharing

As a values-based credit union, our members are our shareholders. And they have a say in where our profits go. Since 1994, we’ve decided that 30% of our profits every year would go back to our members and the community.

Total shared: $444.4 million.

What’s your money doing?

We believe in using our money to make big changes in our communities. Through our grant programs, we support organizations working on impact initiatives that align with our values. Explore our key focus areas and how we're helping create positive and lasting change.

When you join Vancity, you’re required to become a member by purchasing Membership Shares. Member ownership is part of what makes Vancity different from other financial institutions. Along with having a say in how our credit union is run, you get a share of our profits every year too.

Each member, regardless of age, must have at least five (5) Membership Shares (for a total of $5.00). We encourage you to read the Accounts and Services Guide for additional information about your accounts and membership.

What’s my share this year?

Vancity members received their share for 2022 at the end of March 2023.

Shared Success Dividends rate on personal and business Membership Shares: 5.00%

Where can I find my shares?

Can I purchase more Membership Shares?

Yes, you can subscribe for and purchase up to a maximum of 1,000 shares.

Why should I invest in Membership Shares?

Your investment in Vancity allows us to accelerate our impact lending in community projects that make a tangible impact in our communities.

What do I need to be aware of if I’m interested in purchasing more shares?

Please see the Terms and Conditions for the purchase of Membership Shares.

The profits of your banking could go to faceless shareholders who you’ll never meet. Or they could go to you and the community you love. You have a choice.
