Minimizing the Spread of the Virus

Since early March, Interior Savings has been actively monitoring and managing impacts of COVID-19 on our employees, operations and communities. Through it all, the health and safety of our members and employees has been a top priority. We’re taking precautionary measures to reduce the risks and impacts of COVID-19 in our operations including:

  • As per the Provincial Health Officer, masks are STILL recommended in indoor public spaces. 
  • Increasing sanitization of high touch surfaces and boosting the supply of hygiene products in our branches and administration centres.
  • Actively monitoring employee absenteeism and travel, and requiring self-isolation where exposure to COVID-19 is possible.
  • Instituting changes in our branches to increase social distancing and, where feasible to do so, enabling employees to work remotely.
  • Closing our community rooms and asking members and suppliers to call before coming into a branch if they feel ill or have travelled internationally. 

Please call our Member Service Centre at 1-855-220-2580 with any details you can provide about your contact with us.

We encourage our members to stay informed and use clear, accurate, and up-to-date information from official resources only.  We recommend the following two sites:


Banking Services and Member Support

You can expect regular updates on and Interior Savings social media channels.  Members can also call in to our Member Service Centre (1-855-220-2580).  If we close a branch we'll do our best to notify affected members through emails or personal calls.

If you’re not already using our online banking, give our Member Service Centre a call (1-855-220-2580) and we’ll get you set up and walk you through it on the phone.   You can pay bills, transfer money between accounts, friends and family members, and stay on top of your account balances from the safety and comfort of your home. If you’re doing more online shopping, you can even link your PayPal account to your chequing account. Even better, once you’re set up to use online banking, you can download our mobile app and do all your banking from your mobile device.

To help minimize the spread of this virus, we’re encouraging members to reduce their use of cash and instead opt for contactless payment options.  Your Member Card and Collabria Credit Cards are enabled with tap functionality.  You can just tap your card on the pin pad without having to touch any buttons.

  • Offers of fast COVID-19 tests
  • Resale of expired or fake consumer products at high prices
  • Fake decontamination services
  • Fake products that claim to treat or prevent the disease
  • Investing in hot new stocks related to the disease

Market and Investment Impacts

We’re continuing to see a lot of volatility in the market and, while not all of it is related to COVID-19 coronavirus, our message to investors remains the same: Trust your plan; it was designed to weather the storm. Staying focused on the big picture – your long-term goals – rather than the short-term fluctuations, will help keep you on track. The short-term effects can be frustrating but changing course because of them could do more harm than good in the long run.

Please call your advisor or our Investment Solution Centre to help with your questions. The Investment Solution Centre team can be reached during normal office hours Monday to Friday at (250) 469-7027 or at our Toll Free number 1-855-788-8999.
