Did you know?

G&F has a long history as a community credit union serving families and businesses in the Lower Mainland.

Gulf and Fraser Fishermen’s Credit Union (our full legal name) was founded in Vancouver in 1940 and over the years we have built 16 branches across the Lower Mainland, including four branches in Burnaby. When G&F merged with United Savings Credit Union in 2004, we brought in a legacy of cooperative, community-focused work in Burnaby that can be traced back to the 1930s. In fact, not far down the road from the Edmonds Branch, one of the first credit unions in BC was conceived at a co-op grocery store.[1]  Read this member story to learn more.

80 years later, credit unions are still strong in BC and continue to evolve along with the finance industry. We take pride in holding true to our co-operative principles as we uphold our concern for community and make it our first priority to provide education, training and information, and financial services that support our members.

We are committed to strengthening our communities.

As a community-based and member-owned credit union, G&F Financial Group is committed to doing business in a way that contributes to the social, economic and environmental well-being of the communities we serve.

One of G&F’s core values is to create positive and meaningful change in our communities. The staff at our Edmonds Branch have demonstrated their commitment to enriching communities through the support they have given to local charities and organizations.

Welcome to the Edmonds Branch!

Previously known as the South Burnaby Branch, the name has changed to the Edmonds Branch to pay homage to our long history in this area. Located at Suite 101 – 7310 Kingsway, the branch provides full financial services within a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere.

Branch entrances:

There are two entrances to the branch.

  1. The main entrance is at the corner of Edmonds Street and Kingsway
  2. The second entrance is on Edmonds Street. You will need to go down a set of stairs to enter the branch.

You can enjoy the tables and seating in our spacious lounge. It’s a great place to read, study, or take care of paper work. Seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
