North Peace Savings & Credit Union Expanding with New Smart Service Centre into Dawson Creek

Fort St John, November 16th – Residents of the South Peace region will now have the opportunity to bank smarter with the B.Free personal and B.Smart business accounts from North Peace Savings & Credit Union (NPSCU).

NPSCU is eager to announce plans to further expand its financial services to the South Peace region.  Stationed in Dawson Creek, NPSCU will be able to better serve members in the regions of Dawson Creek, Pouce Coupe, Tumbler Ridge and Chetwynd.  The South Peace’s primary demographic profile aligns itself with NPSCU’s vision to be the preferred financial institution among small and medium sized enterprises and residents in every community that they serve.

The NPSCU Business Services team has the experience and expertise to help and guide members through the entire spectrum of financial services and products a business might need.  From business planning, financial planning, wealth management and tax-free savings accounts to a raft of financial instruments that include equipment financing and leasing, lines of credit, credit cards and business mortgages, they have the experience and the expertise to make things happen.  Their industry specialty skills cover all the local sectors; agriculture, forestry, oil & gas, mining, land development, construction and retail.  With the support they offer local businesses, NPSCU contributes to greater member prosperity, and a healthy local economy by reinvesting in the communities it serves.

This will be the first significant geographical expansion for NPSCU since 2012 with the entrance into Taylor, BC with its national award winning Micro Service Centre.  While the exact location of the Smart Service Centre is still in the early discovery stages, NPSCU is excited to share that it will leverage its award winning technology to meet the needs of South Peace members with a Smart Service Centre.  Using Face 2 Face Video Banking and Smart Office technology, Dawson Creek residents will be connected to NPSCU’s full range of experienced specialists from Business Solutions, Personal Solutions to Wealth Management expertise.  Onsight will include two experience specialists to assist members in the Smart Service Centre, paired with a Business Account Manager and a Mortgage Specialist who will be located in the South Peace marketplace.

NPSCU is looking forward to providing greater service to its current membership base in Dawson Creek and meeting the unmet financial needs of small businesses in the area.  CEO Mitchel Chilcott shared, “our business solutions team paired with our B.Smart business account will provide additional value to small and medium enterprises south of the Peace River.”  NPSCU has built a reputation for taking the time to understand the opportunities and challenges small to medium business operators face, to know its members goals and to make decisions locally and quickly, based on expert knowledge of local, economic conditions and a drive to improve life for all in the region.

NPSCU looks forward to sharing location and design elements of the Smart Service Centre in the upcoming months!
