A Message from our CEO, October 8, 2020

After careful thought and analysis, on November 1, 2020, North Peace Savings & Credit Union’s (NPSCU) Dawson Creek Branch will be closing permanently. We want to assure our Dawson Creek membership that although we will no longer have a physical presence, we are committed to our Dawson Creek members and will support their transition to using other branches and the digital banking options available.

Our Dawson Creek Branch will remain open as usual until end of business day on October 31, 2020.

Message From The CEO,
March 25, 2020: COVID-19

Dear Member,

In the past few weeks, we’ve witnessed the ever changing social and economic impact of COVID‑19 here, locally, and around the world.  As we work hard to balance being here for you, while keeping our Members and staff safe, we notice that you are doing your part too. Thank you!

We see responsible business owners who are not only making tough decisions to keep our residents safe, but also going out of their way to ensure EVERYONE gets the supplies they need.  We see our communities responding with a resounding “YES” when our province asks them to  take only what they need, social distance themselves and self-isolate where possible to help flatten the curve.  We see countless members of our communities offering what they can to make self-isolation and social distancing as pleasant as possible.  Passionate residents are offering everything from online fitness classes, to live stream concerts, to hanging paper hearts in their windows (so children can play eye spy from the safety of a vehicle).  We are so proud to be part of the amazing communities we serve, we are blown away by your kindness, your cooperative spirit and your creativity!

What we’re doing:

We are working out the details of payment relief for members whose income has been impacted by COVID-19. Once we know the full extent of the program, we will communicate more. Thank you for your patience in this unprecedented time.

As COVID-19 continues to spread in Canada and around the world, we are monitoring the situation and doing our part to keep our Members and staff safe.  To see the specific and up to date actions we are taking in response to COVID-19, please visit:
