Gain the insights you need to take action!

Join community members, entrepreneurs and businesses, investors, nonprofits and elected representatives at the ‘I Invest Local’ Forum on Community Impact Investment.

The Vancouver Island Community Investment Cooperative invests money in local, sustainable projects on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

Our unique investment model ensures social impact investors receive a GIC equivalent return on investment, while helping local projects obtain the funding they need. In the same way that we recognise the benefit of ‘shop local’ campaigns to bolster local economies, individual investors see the very real benefits of investing local.

This is an opportunity to learn and take action on investing locally within your own community – your money won’t be in stocks and shares, but in projects and people.

Other events are being planned in Sidney, Victoria, the Cowichan Valley, and Nanaimo in the next few months. Suggestions welcome on other events or presentations we can make to your events!
