Law Foundation signs new agreement with Envision Credit Union
Law Foundation Chair Warren Wilson QC has commended Envision Credit Union for its commitment to pay a competitive rate of return on lawyers’ pooled trust accounts — funds that support the Foundation in its work.
Under a new interest rate agreement on lawyers’ pooled trust accounts, in effect January 1, 2006, Envision pays a return of prime less 3%. Thanks go to Gordon Huston, President and Chief Executive Officer of Envision Credit Union, for his leadership in making this new agreement possible.
Increased revenues enable the Law Foundation to fund programs that make the justice system accessible to British Columbians, particularly people who have the greatest access problems as a result of their economic, social, physical or mental special needs. The funded programs include professional legal education, public legal education, law reform, legal research, legal aid and law libraries.
The Law Society, the Law Foundation and the Canadian Bar Association (BC Branch) encourage lawyers to consider which financial institutions provide the best support to the Law Foundation when deciding where to place their trust accounts.
