This feature will be available soon on our new online banking platform.  Until then, you can place a stop payment on a cheque through our classic online banking.  Visit our login page to sign in and complete those transactions.  

Contact any of our branches to place a Stop Payment on automatic withdrawals or pre-authorized payments.

Brand Refresh

32. Why did you change your logo and brand?  

We recognized that our longstanding, and much loved brand, required a bit of a refresh if it was going to continue being relevant and meaningful to the people of the Peace.  Our brand refresh allows us the opportunity to ensure that all of our marketing and communications, be they online or physical, are compliant with best practices around accessibility moving forward. It also gave us the chance to really peel back the layers of our identity and try to distill it down to its core, vital elements with respect to who we are and what we want to be for our members as we move into the future. 

33. What does the new logo represent?

Here are some of the key elements of our new logo and brand:  

  • A bold “L” shape to represent the three communities where we have physical branches: Dawson Creek, Chetwynd and Tumbler Ridge.  
  • The overlaid inverted triangle evokes notions of the area we serve: the entire Peace. 
  • The page turn in the corner is In the spirit of the pioneers that settled this vast land, suggestive of the unexplored that lies beyond the horizon, and our embrace of the future.  
  • The colours contained within our new logo and brand palette are inspired by the abundance of natural richness the Peace provides.   

Our logo and refreshed brand is a combination of these many influences. In updating our brand, we understand the need to find the balance between honouring what’s come before with our desire to look ahead and meet the challenges of the future by embracing the frontier. Visit our About Us page to learn more about what makes us unique.    

34. Will my Collabria MasterCard with the old logo still be accepted?

Yes, you can continue to use your existing Collabria MasterCard and it will be replaced when it expires; the new card will have our updated logo.  Starting in early 2021, new and replacement cards issued will have our updated logo. 

35. Will my cheques with the old logo still be accepted?

Yes, you can continue to use the cheques you’ve got as your account information and our branch information has not changed.  When you are ready to order new cheques, they will be printed with our new logo. 

36. I’ve received a communication with the old logo, is this legitimate?

We are working hard internally and with all of our service partners to ensure that our branding is updated on all of our communications.  However, we do expect that there may be a transition period where documents or communications could still be sent or received with our old logo.  If you have any concerns about the authenticity of something you’ve received claiming to be from LVCU, please contact us to review and confirm.
