Folks have realized that working for an employer that prioritizes equal opportunity, diversity, flexibility, health and wellness, and career opportunities could provide them with a greater sense of happiness while at work.

      “I’ve been with Vancity for a little over nine years and after a relatively brief stint working in a branch, I transitioned to the call centre,” says Lance G., now manager of Anti-Money Laundering at Vancity. “While I enjoyed my branch experience, it wasn't until I got to the call centre that my career with Vancity really took off. As a person who loves to learn new things and take on new challenges, working at the call centre provided me with those opportunities. Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to work in five different positions, growing my skills with every move.”

      “Despite being the largest credit union in Canada, with more than 2,500 team members and 550,000 members, Vancity feels like a small, tight-knit community,” says Christina Fai, director of talent and development at Vancity. “No matter your role or location, team members share a collective goal: being a financial force for change.”
