From the Law Foundation of BC

Coastal Community Credit Union

Law Foundation Chair, Mary Mouat, commends Coastal Community Credit Union for its commitment to paying a competitive rate of return on lawyers’ pooled trust accounts. Recognizing the overall negative impact of continued low interest rates on the Law Foundation’s revenues, Coastal Community Credit Union agreed to a new interest agreement of prime less 2%, effective November 1, 2010, that will ensure that Coastal Community Credit Union will continue as a preferred institution with which to bank.

Thanks go to Adrian Legin, President and CEO of Coastal Community Credit Union for making this new agreement possible.

Increased revenues enable the Law Foundation to fund programs that make the justice system accessible to the people of British Columbia. The funded programs include professional legal education, public legal education, law reform, legal research, legal aid and law libraries.

The Law Society, the BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association and the Law Foundation encourage lawyers to consider which financial institutions provide the best support to the Law Foundation when deciding where to place their trust accounts.
