We want to send a big warm welcome to the lovely province of British Columbia which, as of today, is the latest province to be added to the CommunityLend online lending system along with Ontario and Quebec.
As of today, potential borrowers and qualifying lenders from anywhere in the province of British Columbia are free to visit CommunityLend and apply for a loan or set-up a lending account. So whether you live in Vancouver, Vanderhoof or Vernon, you are now invited to join CommunityLend.
In honour of this momentous occasion, we thought we would include some fast facts on our newest operating province (source here).
- British Columbia (B.C.) entered Canadian confederation in 1871 and is Canada’s third most populated province with over 4.4 million people.
- B.C. is Canada’s third largest province by land mass as well, occupying about 10 per cent of Canada’s land surface.
- B.C.’s provincial motto is "splendor without diminishment." which they take quite seriously as more than 14% of British Columbia is “protected” – more than any other province in Canada.
- B.C. is the largest film and television production centre in Canada and the third-largest in North America – after New York and Los Angeles.
We look forward to working with the residents of British Columbia to help them change the rules of lending in their province!
