Mount Lehman Credit Union merges with G&F Financial Group

Mount Lehman Credit Union merges with G&F Financial Group*

In January 2021, the Board of Mount Lehman Credit Union made the decision to pursue a partner credit union. In July 2021, we announced that we would be pursuing a merger with G&F Financial Group (Gulf and Fraser Fishermen’s Credit Union)*. A membership vote was held from November 30th - December 21st, 2021 and the majority of voting members voted in favour of merging with G&F Financial Group.

January 1st, 2022 marked our first day as a combined credit union.

Thank you for believing with us that the best path forward, for our employees, members and community, is together.

As a member, you can expect to see the same familiar faces you’ve grown to know. With this merger you can look forward to many benefits over time, including:

  • greater choice of products and services
  • specialized expertise to serve your unique needs
  • branches located close to home
  • …and more
Extended hours to serve you

As a member of G&F Financial Group, you have access to our Member Hub call centre, where experienced advisors can assist you at a time that suits you. Advisors are available for your call as early as 7am and as late as 7pm, Monday to Friday. For those who prefer to do their banking on the weekend, you can talk to us on Saturdays from 8am to 4pm. You can reach the Member Hub at 604-419-8888 or by email at inquiry@gffg.com and you’ll receive an email back within 1 business day. You can also get quick help through our live chat and video chat!

We want you to know, the branch staff you’ve come to know so well are still here—they are adapting to life at a larger (but still local) credit union with increased opportunities.

Come visit us at any of our branches!

You can now choose from any of our 26 G&F branches across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley to perform most of your day-to-day banking. If you’d like a product or service offered by G&F, we’ll do our best to accommodate you, just ask!

No account changes until Fall

Since there’s a lot of work to do in bringing our credit unions’ banking systems together, we ask for your patience and understanding as we work toward integrating our banking system with G&F’s system in the Fall of 2022. At that time, you’ll be transitioned to our new simplified lineup of spending and saving accounts with great benefits such as discounts for Seniors and unlimited e-transfers. Until the Fall though, it’s business as usual for your banking—your auto deposits, auto withdrawals and your cheques will stay the same for now. We’ll be connecting with you about any changes to your account well in advance so that you are informed and prepared.

Above all, your experience is our top priority. If you have questions, please read the Frequently Asked Questions section on our website. You can also call G&F’s Member Hub support line, Monday to Friday from 7am to 7pm and Saturdays from 8am to 4pm. They’re looking forward to welcoming all of us to the G&F family!

We want to hear from you!
