The YES offers cooperative leadership summer camp programs for 14-18 year olds. During the one week camp, youth expand their leadership and team building skills while connecting with youth from around the province. COVID-19 and other associated social issues have impacted our youth in many different ways, and the YES provides community spaces that focus on building leadership, resiliency, connection, mental wellness and more. 

Parents have called the impact of Camp YES as transformative and life-changing for the family, the parents and the youth.  A sponsored camper says:

  • "I'm excited for CCEC to sponsor more youth, because, like me, the lessons they learn at camp will help them immensely in their relationships with family and friends.”
  • "I wouldn't be where I am today without the YES and that’s all thanks to CCEC’s sponsorships throughout the years.”‚Äč

A highlight of our summer at CCEC is receiving the Thank-You cards from the youth.  Here are a few shared experiences: 

  • "This camp was impactful because I learned about how the rest of the world isn’t as fortunate as me.  I learned how to become a good leader.”
  • "I learned to be more careful with my words and to be more considerate.” 
  • "I adored the nightly activity called, Reflections.  It’s a perfect way to let out bottled up emotions in a safe and respectful environment.” 

Youth who want to attend camp can apply for a scholarship to cover the registration fee. The CCEC Scholarship Fund is 100% member supported.  Members donate to the Scholarship Fund and youth apply to be sponsored. 

Youth can complete the attached form or email Joanne for more information. 

To make a donation, send an email to info@ccec.bc.ca or phone us at 604.254.4100. 

At CCEC, we are proud of our members who donate to the Scholarship Fund and have allowed our youth to go to camp. This is a 100% member funded project.

At CCEC, we are proud of our members who contribute to the Camp YES Scholarship Fund allowing us to cover the Registration Fee for youth to attend the one week co-operative leadership camp.  We hear from campers and their family of their transformative experience as they learned tools and skills to create positive change in their family, school, and community.


At the camp, youth expand their leadership and team building skills while connecting with youth from around the province. Camp YES recognizes that COVID-19 and other associated social issues have impacted our youth in many different ways, and look forward to providing community spaces that focus on building leadership, resiliency, connection, mental wellness and more. 


Chelsea Lake, ED for Camp YES shares their philosophy on developing leadership skills,  “Our programs are not meant to produce student class presidents, they’re meant to inspire personal integrity, personal growth, the development of self-worth and the ability to connect authentically with others.  We talk about a theory of change that relies on metaphors like the ripple effect, the butterfly effect, the snowball effect or the domino effect. It’s all about being yourself, being conscientious, doing what you think is right, and inspiring others to do the same.”

We are now accepting applications for the 2022 recognition and award. 


This award is given annually to member groups that are active in social justice and co-operative development activity.  The award consists of three elements:  recognition from our community, our commitment to promote the project further through CCEC, and a financial contribution from the Roger Inman Trust.  The project itself contributes to the economic development of the community.

If you are a CCEC Member Group, business or individual you may apply for this special recognition and cash award. The award honours the memory of Roger Inman who contributed lots of time and effort to the early years of CCEC. His contributions to the wellbeing of the credit union and community economic development are numerous.  

Roger Inman became a member when CCEC first opened in 1976 and shortly after began serving as a volunteer teller. He was also a member of the credit committee, and later joined the Board of Directors where he served as co-chair and spearheaded the newsletter. A warm lovable man, Roger always contributed his time, insights, and humour to the many community initiatives with which he was involved. He was also active in local politics where his keen mind and natural optimism were always appreciated. Through this award, we acknowledge his devotion to community economic development, his commitment to his ideals and his generosity in spirit.

CCEC is committed to keeping our money and resources working in our community by actively supporting and promoting the development of strong, successful community businesses, projects and organizations

Applications are available on our website and in the branch. Learn more about the award and our 2021 co-winners DOXA Documentary Film Festival and the Pride in Art Society.

On June 16th, 2021, CCEC introduced an enhanced online banking system. We added new features and increased login security.  While many features remain the same, we want our members to learn more about these new features in the Online Banking FAQ's.

 

  • Increased login security
  • Alerts
  • Mobile Banking App - coming soon
  • Mobile Cheque Deposit - coming soon.

If you have access to online banking you will notice changes on the login screen. There is a new link to iBank and you can use your current login and password to access your account. You will need to set up your security questions and image when you first log in to the new system and may be asked to change your password. If you are not currently using Online Banking, please give us a call and we will set it up for you. 

Increased Login Security: We take many precautions to protect the online banking environment and ensure your information is safe. For more information click on the Security tab once you have logged on.  There are three parts to our Online Banking security enhancements: a personal image, a personal phrase, and three challenge questions that only you know the answers to.

When you're signing in from a different computer, we'll ask you one of your challenge questions to verify your identity. When you answer correctly, your personal image and phrase will appear. You'll then know it's safe to continue; and we'll know that it's really you.

The image will be displayed every time you login. If you don't see the image you selected the next time you login, or a different image is shown, please close the browser and contact us right away, as you may not be accessing the legitimate CCEC CREDIT UNION Internet Banking site.

Interac e-Transfer: The fast, secure way to send and receive money. For more information, download the Interac e-Transfer FAQ's With the switch to iBank you may need to reset your Auto-Deposit. 

If you have any questions about iBank, please contact the branch.

It’s Mental Health Week and this year’s theme is understanding our emotions. 2021 is the 70th annual Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) campaign rallying to celebrate, protect and promote mental health.  Since the onset of the pandemic, 40% of Canadians say their mental health has deteriorated.  As many people are experiencing a time of unprecedented stress and anxiety, it is even more important that we support good mental health for everyone. 


There are many resources available online to help us address mild to moderate mental health challenges due to work related issues, family worries, sleep difficulties or physical health problems. There are two programs our members may find helpful: the CMHA program called BounceBack® and the Federal Government’s Wellness Together portal. Both these sites aim to be a practical way of learning key life skills that can boost your mood and help you turn the corner. 


They say that good mental health isn’t about being happy all the time. In fact, a mentally healthy life includes emotions like sadness, fear and anger. It is important that we know how to recognize, label and accept our feelings. Naming our emotions, understanding how we are feeling, and taking corrective actions when our response isn’t helpful are all strategies for good mental health.  


We are all in this together and we need to look out for and support each other. The world has changed and we can let people know we are here for them and that they’re not alone. The pandemic has made it more difficult to be together with each other and this lack of social contact has adversely impacted our mental and physical well-being. With this in mind, if you do know someone who is living alone or in a stressful or unsupportive environment, reach out to them. A check-in call goes a long way to keep vulnerable members of our community connected.  


In closing, be sure to take care of yourself so that you can support your family, friends and neighbours. Follow the recommendation on the Wellness Together site and Take 5 to do the mindfulness and breathing exercises. 


This is Mental Health Week. Get Real with your emotions. Visit BounceBack® and the Wellness Together sites to learn more.

Improvements are coming soon to CCEC’s online banking. We are adding mobile features and increasing login security. With the enhanced security measures being introduced, we feel that members will be more comfortable switching to online banking or using more online banking services.  

 

A few of the new features include: 

  • Mobile Banking App. 

  • Mobile cheque deposit - take a picture to deposit a cheque to your account. 

  • Get customized Alerts about your account activity sent to your phone or email. 


You will notice improvements on the login screen. It has a new look and you will be asked to set up User Authentication. Here are the three steps to follow: 


  1. On the login screen, you enter your Login Name which is your current Account Number; and your Password where you enter your Personal Access Code (PAC) from the current banking system. 

  2. Set up your User Authentication. Select three questions and enter your answers. 

  3. Pick an image to use as your Personalized Security Image. 


Each time you login, you will be prompted for this User Authentication confirmation. It is random if you answer the questions you set up but the image will be displayed every time you login. The User Authentication takes a few minutes to set up and we feel the increased security will help our members feel more secure and comfortable banking online.


We will be providing our members with more information on the enhancements and improvements to online banking. This is a great time to sign up for Online Banking and switch to e-Statements. Visit our website www.ccec.bc.ca for updates.

The YES is running a limited number of smaller programs this summer.  Youth ages 14-18 who want to attend Camp YES this year, please email Joanne. We have Sponsorships to support the Registration Fee.


Last summer, due to Covid, there could be no overnight camps. At that time, the Camp YES staff asked themselves, "What should we do during this time?  As co-operators, the question inevitably became, “How can we best serve our members, or our community?"  They’ve been busy this past year supporting our youth and here is an update on their initiatives: 


  • Created the YES This Journal Activity Book Download a copy

  • YES Camp merch is for sale!

  • The podcast, Care Package, is in its second season

  • Continue to connect alumni with each other for support. If you are a YES Camp or Camp Rainbow Alumni, stay in touch with Camp YES here

  • Produce a regular newsletter - subscribe to their Mailing List


Their 2021 programming for the start of summer includes virtual camps, and weeklong day camps. With ongoing health and safety guidelines, The YES will not be able to facilitate traditional week-long overnight camps. However, they recognize that this may change, and, if so, they will be sure to update you and their programs. Be sure to subscribe to their mailing list and check their website for updates.  At this time, their program is: 

  • Roots Hybrid (Mainland)  July 5-9

  • Roots Hybrid (Island) – July 12 - 16

  • Roots Virtual – July 19 - 23

  • Pathways Virtual – July 26 - 30

  • Leadership Cohort Virtual - TBC


Members may donate to the Camp YES Scholarship Fund by email to info@ccec.bc.ca or by phone to 604.254.4100. Youth ages 14-18 are asked to email Joanne with your application


At CCEC, we are proud of our members who contribute to the Camp YES Scholarship Fund allowing us to supoort the Registration Fee for our Youth.  We also believe that the Camp YES programming is a transformative experience for both campers and parents;  and provides our youth with the tools and skills to create positive change in their family, school, and community.
