CCEC Credit Union and Community Savings Credit Union in merger discussions

CCEC Credit Union and Community Savings Credit Union are pleased to announce they have engaged in merger discussions that will provide for a robust and dynamic credit union greater than the sum of its parts. By joining together, the credit unions will be able to better serve their collective memberships, employees and communities, through scale and combined resources. As like-minded partners, with similar values, they will be coming together as a fully unionized credit union that provides banking for all members.

The two credit unions serve markets spanning across Lower Mainland communities from Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Port Coquitlam, Surrey and Victoria. The merger will enable them to combine resources providing increased product offerings, specialized expertise and an expanded branch network to members. Community Savings recognizes CCEC’s unique position as the credit union that provides banking services to a wide spectrum of members in its community, with diverse banking needs. This aligns closely with Community Savings values and by coming together, this vision and spirit will be extended.

The combined organization (CCEC Credit Union and Community Savings Credit Union) would operate under the legal name Community Savings Credit Union and would create a network of seven branch locations, serving over 14,500 members.

Our members and employees will experience many benefits through the merger, some of which include:

  • Greater access to branches through an extended branch network
  • Expanded range of products and services, which we will work to make bigger and better for all members
  • More career opportunities for employees within a larger organization
