​About Us

Building better communities. This is our story. 

Since the humble beginnings in 1949 to the trusted brand we are today, the wellbeing of our members have always been our main focus. We started with one branch and have since grown to three branches serving more than 4,000 members. We are big enough to provide you with everything you need but small enough to stay connected to you, our member.

At Biggar and District Credit Union we pride ourselves on providing innovative, high quality financial products, excellent customer service, and trusted advice from our local experts – everything you’d expect from your financial institution and more. 

Our success as a financial cooperative is built on the lasting relationships we form with our members – whether in person or online. We are committed to building a prosperous community. By doing business with us, you are part of this larger purpose too!

We are in this together

To deliver on our promise to build better communities, we are dedicated to engage with stakeholders to find ways to improve the communities we call home. If you are passionate about changing your communities, we want to hear about it 

Join our team

As an innovative leader in the community, we are always looking for bold, inclusive and accountable people to join our team. If you align with the credit union principles and are willing to coach and be coached by a dynamic team, then we are looking for you!
