  • We will have sanitizing stations set up at the entrance, please sanitize on your way in and out of the building.

  • We will only be authorizing a limited number of members in the branch at one time. Please come in alone and have other individuals with you wait outside the building - not in the ATM area or lobby.

  • There will be stickers on the floor to show safe distancing from other members and staff, please abide by them and stand in line where indicated.

  • We will not be scheduling face to face appointments with our Advisors at this time. Please contact your branch to be directed to your Advisor and schedule a phone appointment.

We have also installed new plexi-glass barriers at out MSR stations and have enhanced our cleaning procedures. We will be sanitizing between members being served for the health and safety of everyone.

March 19, 2020 - Service Delivery Change Expand/Collapse

Diamond North Credit Union recognizes the growing concern around the COVID-19 virus and the unease many are facing. Our main priorities are keeping our members, employees and their families safe while maintaining our service to you.

In the face of this crisis, we are changing how we serve our members.  Effective March 19th at 1pm, Diamond North Credit Union will temporarily suspend all In-Branch Services.  

We understand your concerns and will continue to provide access to necessary banking services. Although our doors will not be open to the public, we will have staff available to answer your calls and process transactions.

We ask that you use online banking, mobile apps or our ATM network to perform your day to day transactions such as depositing cheques, paying bills, and account inquiries. Alternative methods and actions we will be implementing include:
  • Using our night deposit to drop off cheques and bill payments for processing. (Our staff will be processing these transactions regularly throughout the day.)
  • Waiving fees for phone transactions.
  • Working with our personal, farm and business members on a case-by-case basis to help our members manage through this challenging time.
  • Reaching out to our key community organizations, business & consumer members to reduce impacts of this temporary change in service.
  • Phone interviews for your investment, lending and other advisory service needs.
Please call your local branch and we will work with you to meet your financial needs.  We anticipate increased call volumes, so please be patient. Rest assured our staff will be here to help you.

We are doing our best to navigate these uncertain times as the progress of the virus continues, and the impact is made known. We thank you for your support in keeping the health and safety of our members and employees the priority.
