Overcome barriers to a mortgage with a personalized touch

GVC Credit Union believes in second chances and works to provide individuals with an opportunity to rebuild their financial stability
GVC Credit Union’s mission is to help individuals build their financial positions.

Have you been told that you do not qualify for a loan or mortgage because of your credit history, because you’re self-employed or new to Canada? Perhaps your current mortgage is with a private lender and you're seeking more cost-effective alternatives? Don't be disheartened!

While the road to homeownership may have its challenges, it's important to remember that there are options available to help you navigate these obstacles. With perseverance and the right guidance, you can explore different avenues and find a path that works for you.

As one of the oldest credit unions in B.C., GVC Credit Union prioritizes offering loans and mortgages to individuals who may have experienced various setbacks that left them with a bruised credit score.

A mortgage application unique to you

GVC Credit Union is dedicated to understanding the unique financial circumstances of their members to provide tailored solutions. If you've faced obstacles with other financial institutions, they encourage you to reach out. Together, you can explore various options and find a path forward towards owning a home.

These are some of the typical barriers to applying for a mortgage:

  • Poor credit history or no credit (credit score below 625)  
  • Former bankruptcy or consumer proposal
  • Being self-employed for less than two years
  • Being employed for less than one year
  • Less than 20% down payment 

GVC takes a personalized and comprehensive approach, beyond what an algorithm alone can provide, in order to evaluate a member’s credit eligibility. 

Life can be unpredictable, and unexpected events like illness, job loss, or bankruptcy can significantly impact our finances. At GVC, they know navigating the world of finance can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to obtaining a mortgage. Unlike other lenders, they take a more personalized and empathetic approach.
