As we all work together to get to the “next normal,” we know that Coast Capital has a role to play in building the better future we all wish for. With that in mind, Coast Capital is evolving to integrate social purpose into our day-to-day operations and across every dimension of our business, with the aim of fostering stronger and more resilient communities by unlocking financial opportunities for our members, employees, and partners.  

In 2020, we invested $3.9 million in our local communities.

Just by banking with us, you’re supporting your local community too. Learn how we make an impact and check out our  2020 Public Accountability Statement.

How can we help youth?

Every year, Coast Capital invests 10% of our budgeted bottom line back into our communities with a focus on youth. Since 2000, that's more than $87 million.

Because many youth face more than their share of challenges on their journey to financial independence, Coast Capital strategically invests and works alongside our community partners to break down the barriers that young people face.

We believe that helping young Canadians achieve financial independence will spark a hand-up movement. By tapping into the creative energy of youth and their drive to build a better future, we aim to empower youth to become change-makers and inspire them to pay it forward.

Through our Community Investment Program, we focus our support on helping youth:

  • build a strong financial future
  • succeed during their school years
  • prepare for the world of work
  • address basic, social, emotional and physical needs (unless we remove these barriers, it’s doubly difficult for youth to focus on their finances)
