About Us


Over 70 Years Strong

Since May 1941, Bulkley Valley Credit Union has been building a solid financial institution that members from Burns Lake to the Hazeltons have grown to rely on. People helping people is how we began and we strive to remain people-oriented, both in our financial services and through direct involvement with our communities. We are dedicated to local decision-making and local control, key factors in providing the kinds of services that meet the financial needs of individuals and business members alike.

The Best of Both Worlds

Personal service and members’ needs will always be our prime priorities here in the Bulkley Valley, but we are part of a bigger picture as well. Bulkley Valley Credit Union provides you the same national strengths as larger financial institutions. We are part of an integrated national network with more than $66 billion in assets. Over 4.6 million Canadians rely on credit unions, almost 1.5 million of them right here in British Columbia.

Innovative Products, 1-on-1 Service

Through our trade associations and data processing suppliers we have the most innovative technology available to us. Enhancements to our services, including remote delivery channels such as Internet and telephone banking, are made regularly. Our members appreciate the way in which we combine today’s new technology with our one-on-one service. You will find our range of financial services broad, and our staff friendly and knowledgeable.

You As a Member

Being a member of Bulkley Valley Credit Union means more than opening an account; you become an important part of us. You vote to elect a Board of Directors who are nominated from the general membership. The Directors represent you, the member. They are responsible for setting policies, which are then implemented by the Chief Executive Officer

Thank you to our Photographers

The Bulkley Valley Credit Union created a customized calendar a number of years ago and there were so many amazing submissions that our office received we tried to think of different ways to use them. Our website introduced in great way to show off some of our local scenery taken by talented photographers!

    Changes to Account presentation on MemberDirect®

    Members will notice a change in how MemberDirect® appears now that our Banking System Conversion is complete. All accounts that a member has an ownership in will show in your list of accounts. For ease of use and identification, those accounts can be renamed by the account owner for easier identification going forward. In the “My Accounts’ area, in the top left corner of the MemberDirect® home page, there is an option to ‘Rename Accounts’. For any additional assistance or concerns please contact your local branch staff, and they will be pleased to assist you.
