Catherine Ludgate
Manager, Community Investment


As a values-based financial co-operative, Vancity is committed to transforming how banking is done so we can help our members and our local communities thrive financially, socially and environmentally.  As a financial institution, how we invest and operate affects community well-being. It's a responsibility that we take seriously. That's why our values-based banking model is grounded in the local economy, and why we make decisions based on co-operative principles, a commitment to environmental sustainability and through a lens of social justice and financial inclusion. 

We participate in the SLIP because of that commitment to inclusion; we have a responsibility to provide fair, transparent and accessible financial services to everyone in our communities.
