Important update about your Vancity Community Investment Bank Canada Post Prepaid Reloadable Visa* Card
Due to upcoming Visa Canada security requirements, Vancity Community Investment Bank (VCIB) will cease issuing all Canada Post Prepaid Reloadable Visa cards with magnetic stripes for card replacements and renewals (this includes Temporary and Personalized Cards in the Cardholder Agreement, which we collectively refer to as “Magnetic Stripe Cards” in this update). This change is not in effect yet. Please check this page regularly to learn when this change will go into effect.
What this Change will Mean for Existing Magnetic Stripe Cardholders
Once this change is in place, funds on your Magnetic Stripe Cards will not expire, and you will be able to continue using your card and reload it until its expiration date. However, past the expiration date, or if a card is replaced, a new VCIB Canada Post Reloadable Chip and Pin Visa card (“Chip Card”) will be mailed to you in order to continue using your funds. There is nothing you need to do to be transitioned to the new card.
We are no longer offering for sale any new Magnetic Stripe Cards under the Canada Post program. Please visit a Canada Post location to purchase a VCIB Chip and Pin Prepaid Reloadable Visa card.
