We’re Your Community Credit Union

Strengthening our local communities

Since 1944, Union Bay Credit Union has been your community credit union, serving the needs of our members and giving back to our local communities.

With a wide array of financial products, services and account options, we’re able to offer you the financial services you need in today’s modern world with the close-knit feel and personal connectedness of a bygone era.

When you join UBCU, you become a proud member/owner of your homegrown, community credit union. You also become part of a growing cooperative movement that’s turning away from the ideology of profit for profit’s sake and embracing the values of equality, decision sharing and community building.

Decisions we make at Union Bay Credit Union are made right here at our branches. This is where we live, this is where we work and this is where – with your help – we’re making our communities stronger one member at a time.

The difference is community

Though the credit union movement is definitely growing in popularity, we're still occasionally asked, "How is a credit union different?"

While there are several defining features that distinguish credit unions from other financial institutions, the most significant is our connection to the communities we serve.

Union Bay Credit Union is a 100% member-owned cooperative and, as such, we reinvest our profits in those communities - from Bowser to Royston and Denman to Hornby. This 'giving back" takes the form of bursaries to local students, support of homegrown non-profits and even Community Connect gift certificates that benefit both local organizations and local businesses.

Already this year we have invested $14,000 in our local communities, supporting 21 different community groups in the process. On top of that, we award $5,250 in bursaries each year to students pursuing post-secondary education and we ensure that every single voting member, as part-owner of the cooperative, is eligible for an annual divident payment.

When you get to the heart of the matter, giving back is what credit unions are all about. And because all of our decisions are made right here at our branches in Union Bay, Bowser and on Hornby Island, we'll continue to support those communities. After all, our credit union is only as strong as the communities we serve.

This is where we live, this is where we work and this is where, with the help of our members, we're helping to build more resilient communties. Do you represent a local community group? Apply for funding at ubcu.ca.

Proudly supporting the leaders of tomorrow

We all know that our population is aging. One thing we don't hear much about however, is how our aging workforce will affect the leadership capacity within our organizations. As workers retire in increasing numbers, are we preparing the next generation to pick up the torch?

The problem is equally pressing in the nonprofit sector. One local community group, for example, has an average age of 75, and we suspect there are others with similar demographics. In order to sustain the vital work of our community organizations, we need to empower the leaders of tomorrow to step forward and contribute their ideas and energy in a meaningful way.

At UBCU, we're continually looking at ways to mentor, transfer knowledge and otherwise prepare our youth for leadership roles. Along with other credit unions across the province, we proudly support the YES (Youth Exellence Society), which works to build the skill set and resiliency of BC youth through leadership camps and other programs. Its long-term mission is one that we can all rally behind: creating supportive, inclusive communities that encourage us to challenge ourselves and create positive change.

If you're looking at retirement in the not-too-distant future, think about how you can start transferring the vast knowledge you've accumulated to the next generation of young leaders. And if you're and up-and-coming leader, start identifying opportunities for mentorship or more active involvement in your organization or community.

By proactively working together, we can harness the goodness of the next generation and achieve the goal of healthy, united communities.

UBCU student bursaries available until March 31st

We’re committed to building a better future for the communities we serve – and we’d love to help you invest in yours.

Once again, Union Bay Credit Union has made available up to $5,250 in student bursaries that will help our members pursue their educational goals. We’re currently accepting applications for these bursaries until March 31.

Rising tuition costs are making post-secondary studies prohibitively expensive for some students. Our UBCU student bursaries are one small way of breaking down those barriers for deserving students, and of doing our part to build stronger, more resilient communities from the ground up.

This year we’re awarding up to seven bursaries of $750 each to deserving UBCU members (or their children/dependents). Recipients will be selected based on a combination of community involvement, achievement and financial need. If you’re a high school student moving on to post-secondary studies or an adult learner returning to higher education, you’re eligible to apply.

How to apply

High school students must apply through their respective schools. Applications for UBCU adult learner bursaries are accepted until March 31 and can be downloaded from www.ubcu.ca/Personal/CommunityConnect/Bursaries. You can also ask for an application at your local UBCU branch.

Adult learner bursary recipients will be selected in mid-April and announced in June.

Bottom line: If you’re a post-secondary student who’s connected to UBCU, we want to help you succeed. Your success is an essential foundation for building a stronger community.

Protect yourself, your loved ones and your financial future.
