In October 2022, CCEC officially merged with Community Savings Credit Union. Our two credit unions have teamed up to better serve our members, our employees, and our communities. The two credit unions now operate under the Community Savings Credit Union name across all seven operating branches in Vancouver (Joyce Station & Commercial Drive), Burnaby, New Westminster, Port Coquitlam, Surrey, and Victoria.
The first phase of the merger brought our teams, brand and rates together. The second and final phase of the merger – banking system integration – will take place on March 31st, 2023.
Banking system integration means both banking systems will go ‘offline’ for a short period, starting at 3:45pm on Friday March 31st, in order to bring together our banking systems. Member service is our top priority, and our teams are working hard to minimize disruption as we complete this second phase of the merger.
For Legacy CCEC Members
As we prepare for banking system integration, you can expect some changes. Your debit card, cheques and online banking will continue to work as normal. Please contact the CCEC branch directly if you would like to update your contact information, at 604.254.4100.

On Friday March 31st from 3:45pm, the CCEC banking system will go offline in order to integrate it with Community Savings Credit Union’s banking system. After April 1st at 6pm, you will have access to all seven Community Savings branches, in addition to a number of additional services and products.
Some banking services and transactions will be limited starting Monday March 27th to enable our banking systems to join together.
Your CCEC member debit card and Visa card will continue to work through the banking system integration. Note that when the banking system is offline for the integration from March 31st at 3:45pm to April 1st at 6pm, your existing offline limits will apply (typically a limit of $100 for ATM withdrawals and $500 for transactions).
