COVID-19 Updates

Message from Northern Savings’ President & CEO

May 20, 2020

While this week marks the next phase of re-opening in BC, Northern Savings is taking a cautious approach, as our primary focus of re-opening our branches to the public is member and employee safety.  At this time, before we ease restrictions, we are enhancing our safety protocols so our employees, members and clients can be reassured that the branch environment is safe.

We are taking the necessary steps to ensure that we adhere to provincial guidelines around sanitation, social distancing and physical separation. When we do re-open to the public, please anticipate a few changes such as: limiting the number of people in our buildings, hand sanitizing stations, protective screens and enhanced cleaning. What won’t change is our commitment and service to our members and clients.

As we prepare to provide more member access to our locations, please continue to complete your transactions by phone, email, through our apps and website or, when required, an in-person appointment. Soon we will communicate our re-opening plans and provide a timeline when we are comfortable we can open in a safe environment. 

At Northern Savings, we are proud to be northern and I know that we will all get through this by supporting one another and working together.
