About Us

Bulkley Valley Credit Union Vision

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.

Our Mission Statement confirms this commitment as follows:

We will be the leading provider of financial services in each community we service by:

  • anticipating, responding to and fulfilling the needs of our members
  • contributing to the communities
  • delivering high-quality customized service
  • employing committed and empowered staff
  • maintaining the financial health and strong governance of the organization
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.
