Dear Small Businesses,

Thank YOU for creating jobs, diversifying our local economy and strengthening OUR communities! Your innovation and fortitude make the Okanagan a better place for all of us!

– The VantageOne Commercial Services Team

As a thank you for your continued support, we invite local businesses to enter into our draw for 1 of 8 $100 prizes.

Credit Union Day is a special day that we get to celebrate with our members. A day to celebrate and promote the Credit Union difference. For VantageOne, our members are OUR difference….YOU are our owners and give us the ability to positively impact our communities and the local economy.

This year the Credit Union Day celebration is focused around “Inspiring Hope for a Global Community”.

What is International Credit Union (ICU) Day®?

This special day celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement. The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements, recognize hard work and share member experiences. International Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948.

The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the tremendous work that credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more engaged. October 15th will mark the 72nd anniversary of International Credit Union Day. Since 1948, this day has been celebrated annually by thousands of credit unions across the globe.

VantageOne is just one of more than 68,000 credit unions in the World serving 235 million+ members.

How are we celebrating?

This past year has shown us that “we’re stronger together” and sharing our own stories and experiences have brought us closer together with people locally…. and from around the World.

We invite you to celebrate with us virtually this year by sharing something you are thankful for, a story of inspiration or a lesson you have learned so far through this pandemic, by commenting on our social media channels. All with the intention of spreading hope and messages of resilience.

Important Notice – We Wear Because We Care
As we progress through the pandemic and prepare for a potential second wave, we are seeing many changes, in regards, to the wearing of face masks. Many major retailers, schools, and transit systems are moving in the direction of wearing masks in these indoor settings.
Effective October 14, 2020, VantageOne will be requiring face masks for all members, clients and visitors when they visit any of our locations and/or have appointments with any of our staff.


We are in this together!
As of September 14, all of our staff have been required to wear face masks in-branch and in our administration office settings, when outside of their personal office space or outside of their plexiglass barrier area, or when in an appointment with a member.


Why are we making these changes?

As a highly regulated business, we need to follow our society’s authorities that govern health and we know that there are many diverse opinions on the decisions made. We believe it is good in our society to have these diverse views. It has been clear; however, we must follow a three-step model:

  1. Try to avoid contact
  2. If avoidance isn’t possible use physical distancing (remain approx 2 meters apart)
  3. If physical distancing isn’t possible wear personal protective equipment including masks.

Given we are heading into the winter season, we don’t want to have members standing out in the cold so we expect to have to queue in the branch. As a result, we may not be able to follow the physical distance protocol, meaning we must follow the protective equipment model by requiring masks for all.

Thank you for your understanding, remember….we are in this together for the health of our community!
