Our Mission & Purpose

CCEC is a single branch autonomous and independent credit union on Commercial Drive, Vancouver. The credit union was formed in 1976 by a group of community organizations, community activists, local co-ops and not-for-profits who were unable to access financial services through mainstream banks and credit unions.

Our Mission

  • To meet the financial needs of members;

  • To enhance the capacity of the non-profit, co-operative and small business sector of the community we serve;

  • To provide leadership in fostering economic democracy in our community and the credit union system.

Our Purpose

  • To promote group solutions to individuals' problems through the development and maintenance of co-operatives and self-help groups responding to basic human needs and community needs, and supporting one another.

  • To support and promote responsible action in the areas of social justice, racial and sexual equality, worker democracy, and conservation.

  • To develop, support, and promote models for economic organizations that foster and further community, consumer, and worker control, and membership.

  • To provide ourselves with needed financial services at reasonable costs.

  • To educate ourselves and the larger community in the areas of finance, economics, and politics, toward the end of obtaining a more equal distribution of wealth.

  • To maintain a workplace open to worker participation in determining responsibilities, accountability for work performed, and the quality of worklife.
