"As Vancity Credit Union’s Program Manager for Co-operative Partnerships, Elvy works internally on disseminating knowledge of the co-operative business model to increase Vancity’s capacity to support co-ops, and externally on building partnerships and developing projects with community organizations, trade unions, governments, and others to help realize a stronger co-operative economy."
