Released in early February, Vancouver Magazine’s 22nd Annual Vancouver Power 50 list showcases individuals and groups who are making big things happen in the city of Vancouver in 2023. New to the list at #27 is Christine Bergeron, former student of La Citadelle and current President and CEO of Vancity, a values-based financial cooperative with big climate change goals.

Starting as an investment manager with Vancity in June 2011, Bergeron quickly rose through the ranks before being promoted to President and CEO in July 2020.

“Since taking on the role of leading Canada’s largest community-based credit union, Bergeron and her team hired their first chief equity and people officer, launched their Retrofit Program for Non-Profit Affordable Housing Providers and reset the organization’s Indigenous banking strategy to support financial resilience and self-determination,” the Vancouver Magazine article said, “She was named top corporate leader in the 2022 BCBusiness Women of the Year awards for her ongoing dedication to building a future that’s cleaner and more equitable—and we think that’s pretty powerful.”
