After many years of success serving geographic markets in the interior of BC, Interior Savings Credit Union and Spruce Credit Union are in discussions about a potential merger of our two credit unions.
With a strong alignment on a commitment to our communities, employee engagement and development, and providing continued value to members built on trust and strong relationships, the merger of our two credit unions could enable opportunities in all these areas, through scale and combined resources.
Combined, the two credit unions have over 150 years of joint experience serving the Prince George region as well as the Thompson Okanagan region. Collectively, we could provide a network of 23 branch locations and 16 insurance locations, to a combined 77,000 members, spanning across 16 communities. Combined total assets under administration would be approximately $3.7 billion as of November 30, 2020.
Both credit unions are working diligently to complete a thorough assessment of the opportunity. As the assessment and due diligence progresses, members will be provided with periodic updates through our regular member communication channels.
