Where we started. Where we’re going.

At Coast Capital Savings, we ask our members: How can we help you?
It’s not just a clever tagline. It’s our mission to provide simple financial help.
Our roots go back to the 1940s in British Columbia when banks made it difficult for people to get loans. Credit unions were established in communities across the province to make banking fair and accessible.
After several amalgamations of our founding credit unions, three leading organizations emerged, all determined to deliver even more help to their members and communities. Between 2000 and 2002 Pacific Coast Savings on Vancouver Island, Richmond Savings, and Surrey Metro Savings united to become Coast Capital Savings.
We’ve delivered over 75 years of simple financial help and look forward to delivering 75 more. We’re Canada’s largest credit union by membership with over 52 branches serving 543,000 members in Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Vancouver Island and the Okanagan.


Overcoming Adversity Award

The Sources Foundation works with the community to raise funds to support the work of Sources Community Resources Society. The Foundation is a non-political, non-governmental charitable institution and public foundation governed by a dedicated Board of Directors who serve voluntarily to represent our community. We operate independently of the Society.

Before we became the Sources Foundation, we were known as the Peace Arch Community Services (PACS) Foundation.   For over 23 years, the PACS Foundation supported the Peace Arch Community Services Society before it was merged into Sources Community Resources Society in the spring of 2010.

Now, with the naming alignment of the Society and the Foundation, we hope to evolve into a stronger organization under the Sources identity as a dependable source of help for individuals and families in need to fulfill our shared mission: Creating Social Wellness in Our Community.

Since 1992, fundraising efforts, bequests, corporate and individual donations have helped us to build a new food bank, maintain a volunteer dental clinic for low-income persons, run an in-demand hot lunch program and much more.

The Foundation’s programs are delivered through the Sources Community Resource Centres, which are located and operate within White Rock, Surrey, Delta, Langley and Prince George. Many of our programs receive government funding for some initiatives, but many are entirely community funded. A priority of the Sources Foundation is to fund these programs.
