Elkford & Sparwood Branch Hours

Both management and the Board are committed to protecting our employees and members by minimizing the risk of exposures and complying with BC government recommendations.

For EKC to abide by the BC governments’ guidance of keeping 65% of the pre-pandemic contact, EKC aims to reduce branch traffic to 65% of the pre-pandemic numbers and, based on social distancing and office design, eliminated in-person appointments.

Physical distancing is more challenging in Elkford and Sparwood branches due to the layout and size. EKC has also allocated more staff to answering telephone calls and emails as we assist a record number of members through these channels.

We continue to monitor the situation and review the impact on our operations periodically.

We thank members who have offered feedback on this issue. Feedback is reviewed and processed as outlined in EKC’s Member Feedback policy
