In 1944, a small group of people, with limited resources but unlimited faith, pooled their savings to form a credit union that would assist hardworking people with their financial dreams. Today, Community Savings Credit Union continues to rely on its founding principles of "people helping people".
Community Savings Credit Union is not restricted to any one group of individuals. Our doors are open to anyone who enjoys personal service and a wide range of financial products. Societies, partnerships, companies, proprietorships, and trade unions can also become members of Community Savings Credit Union.
To be the credit union of choice within the working community.
To provide the working community a fair opportunity at a better life, by empowering them with banking products and investments that are always in their best interest.
The employees of this credit union are entrusted with the task of financially empowering British Columbia's working community. As a result, all decisions regarding rates, products, and services within Community Savings are governed by four simple principles:
- We treat people the way we would want to be treated.
- We only develop products and services that are in our members’ best interest.
- We are on side with union beliefs of fair wage and treatment of workers.
- We support community initiatives that help empower the individual.
In recent years, Community Savings has been experiencing robust growth. As a co-operative financial institution, it is now BC’s 16th largest credit union with assets totaling over $454 million. In addition to the head office, the credit union has 6 branches located in Metro Vancouver and Victoria. There are now over 80 employees dedicated to serving our members.
