Solidarity Savings is a pooled high-interest savings account program for Labour unions across Canada. Labour unions get higher interest rates by pooling their savings and also make a difference by investing in issues important to their communities. The program was created by Union Savings and Vancity Community Investment Bank (VCIB) and is the first of its kind in Canada.
Labour unions open a Solidarity Savings account with VCIB.
As the collective balance increases, so does the collective interest rate*.
The more unions that participate, the greater the benefit.
Labour unions have full daily access to their account and can move funds in and out of their account.
VCIB is a values-driven bank on a mission to finance a greater tomorrow. We are an Ontario-based schedule 1 federally chartered bank, and a subsidiary of Vancouver City Savings Credit Union (Vancity). We are the only Canadian bank exclusively focused on financing organizations that drive change and we use our clients’ deposits to fund loans that support transformational work in the community including affordable housing and clean energy projects.
