Helmut Pastrick 

Chief Economist, Central 1 Credit Union


BC Economic and Housing update and outlook for 2019, with a review of 2018's forecasts.


Helmut Pastrick is Chief Economist for Central 1 Credit Union, the umbrella organization for the credit union system in the provinces of BC and Ontario.

Today, they represent a consumer-oriented, full-service retail financial network of 127 credit unions, holding more than $92 billion in assets and operating 872 branches, serving upwards of 3.2 million members.

As an organization, they have over 600 employees and hold $13.1 billion in assets. In 2008, they became Central 1 when the provincial credit union centrals of British Columbia and Ontario combined.

Prior to joining Central in 1997, he spent many years with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation in BC responsible for analyzing and forecasting the provincial housing market and economy.

He is past President of the Association of Professional Economists of BC, a member of the Canadian Association for Business Economics, and the BC Economic Forecast Council.

Helmut is frequently called upon by the media to provide comments on economic events and his presentations are in demand by many organizations and groups, including credit unions, trade and professional associations, and service clubs.
