Aldergrove Credit Union members vote YES to merging with G&F

July 8, 2021

On July 6th, Aldergrove Credit Union (ACU) members chose to grow stronger along with us. We now have a combined membership of 52,000, and we remain a cooperative credit union, community leader and your trusted financial partner.  Thank you to the ACU members who believe with us that the best path forward – for them and for G&F members, employees and the community – is together. 

In the coming weeks and months ahead, ACU members can expect to see the same familiar faces they’ve grown to know, and G&F members can expect to enjoy banking in our expanded branch network — from the Lower Mainland to the Fraser Valley.

Now we begin the work of bringing our members, employees and communities together.
