Credit Unions are known for their cooperative values. You will often see them work side by side to achieve a common goal, and such was the case when we approached Vancity about their initiatives to support refugees.
A heartfelt thanks to the team at Vancity for being so generous with their time and information. With their assistance, we have initiated our Welcome to Canada program to help newcomers in their transition to life in Canada. We couldn’t have done it without them! Thanks, Vancity!
The Welcome to Canada Program
We are committed to providing support and assistance to those in need in our communities. It goes back to our cooperative roots and our purpose of making a positive difference in people’s lives and building vibrant communities.
To meet the financial needs of arriving refugees, we’re happy to announce the Welcome to Canada program. The program includes;
- Chequing Account with fees waived for one year
- Travel Loan: to assist those with government issued travel expense loans so that they may payout their interest-bearing loan and benefit from our interest-free loan
- Home Renovations Loan: an interest-free loan to help our existing members who are renovating a suite to house a refugee family.
