Our Community Account

At BCI, we don’t want to just serve the community; we want to be a part of it. That’s why helping out wherever we can is so important to us. Whether it’s sponsoring a local event or helping a non-profit organization with their financial needs, we believe that being good neighbours helps improve the quality of life in our communities. BCI’s new Our Community account is a service package designed for non-profit organizations to help build our people and as a result, build good communities. Come and be part of “Our Community”

Do we qualify for a BCI “Our Community” account?

Features and Benefits

There are two types of accounts- one that receives interest and one that does not. You can elect to take either option. The difference between them though is that if you receive interest you are ineligible for the monthly ballot.
