VANCOUVER, BC, November 24, 2021 – As community-based financial institutions with deep roots in the areas we serve, credit unions have a long history of coming together to support Canadian communities. Recently, a severe storm occurred resulting in flooding, landslides, mudslides, power outages and other incidents across the South Coastal and Interior regions of British Columbia.

With relief and recovery efforts now underway in the province, Central 1 and credit unions across Canada have come together to support the Canadian Red Cross and those who were impacted by the flooding in southern BC. Credit union members are encouraged to donate today by visiting

The Canadian Red Cross is working to get help to people in and around affected areas as quickly as possible and provide humanitarian assistance for new needs as they arise. Money raised will enable the Red Cross to carry out relief, recovery, resiliency and risk reduction activities in and beyond the region at the individual and community levels.

On behalf of Central 1, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude for your generous donations.
