Profit shares

Last year, Vision Credit Union members received $11.9 million in profit shares. Our members get paid for utilizing the financial services they need, like accounts, mortgages and loans. Find out what your share of the profits could be.

Local banking

When you bank with Vision, your money stays in Alberta. We have 18 branches across Alberta, from Manning to Peace River, from Camrose to Vegreville. Member deposits and profits invested back into Alberta communities as loans, mortgages, community contributions and member dividends.

Friendly service

People helping people is the reason we’re in business. It’s why we remember your name and take the time to learn about you and your financial goals. You may prefer to bank online, via mobile, telephone or ATM, but you’ll always get a friendly welcome at your local Vision branch.

Agriculture know-how

Odds are you’ve never seen the category “feeder cattle loan” on a big bank loan application. We’ve got those, and a number of other farming and ranch specific financial options designed for Alberta agriculture businesses. Our team of Ag Specialists even make farm calls.

Community in view

At Vision, we don’t see branch locations and target markets, we see our hometowns. We’re rooted in rural Alberta communities and we know they have so much to offer. In this blog, we share stories about people, businesses and places in our communities and celebrate what makes this wonderful corner of the world feel like home.

Your Volunteer Firefighter

In small communities across Alberta, people know that when sirens blare and firetrucks drive by, the firefighters in those trucks are more than likely volunteers. They could be your husband or wife, mom or dad, son or daughter, neighbour or friend. And they’re helping to safeguard their communities through their courage and commitment to serve.
