Canyon State Credit Union Merger Information


Updated 10/1/19

We are excited to share that the Deer Valley Credit Union members voted to APPROVE the merger with Canyon State Credit Union!

There will be no changes to your accounts. After October 1, we will create a road map that will outline the steps for merging systems in the most efficient way possible.  We plan to roll out new products to all members by March 2020. 

Benefits of This Merger:
•   Additional branch locations
•   Expanded service and product offerings
•   Continued standard of exceptional member service
•   Greater financial strength and even better rates, higher dividends and fewer fees
•   And all employees at both credit unions will retain their jobs!

Future Growth and Member Benefits:  As our bylaws and fields of membership continue to form our new, larger community-based financial institution, we will be well-positioned to serve a larger portion of the state as well as develop plans for future growth.  As you will see in the Annual Report from DVCU and the Annual Report from Canyon State Credit Union, our financials match up well and further demonstrate the good fit of the merger of our two institutions.


We're excited to announce a proposed merger with Deer Valley Credit Union!

On April 5, 2019 we announced a proposed merger with our friends and respective colleagues at Deer Valley Credit Union (DVCU). This mutually beneficial merger will combine our two cooperative financial institutions so that we can:

  • provide a greater selection of products and services
  • provide additional conveniences
  • strengthen our community impact
  • and offer members an expanded branch network with 4 new locations!

Both credit unions are very happy about the opportunities this merger will bring for all of us. We hope you join us in embracing this collaborative initiative to help create a more prosperous future for both memberships!

You Can Help Us Grow Stronger Together

We truly feel that this merger is a perfect strategic fit. The new, combined organization will offer more products, services, and locations for all members and will position us with greater means to continue to offer you premium rates and excellent service long into the future.

Our co-op financial industry continues to feel increased pressure from outside Financial Technology (FinTec) companies.  We want to keep thriving as one of Arizona's best member-owned cooperatives!

We're already strong, but we can be stronger together!
