Get to know Bridgewater Bank

Bridgewater Bank is a Canadian Schedule I chartered bank with a portfolio of over $2.4 billion representing over 34,000 accounts across Canada. We specialize in competitive residential mortgages and deposit products, offered through a select network of trusted brokers.

Established in 1997, Bridgewater Bank is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Alberta Motor Association (AMA), the largest membership service organization in Alberta.

What’s more, our values – which we share with AMA – are rooted in a commitment to provide superior, personal, expert service with integrity. We share the philosophy that our customers are practically family and we look after them that way.

We pride ourselves on our unbanklike approach, which really means that we use common sense to deliver practical solutions that work for you. That includes having honest, respectful conversations with customers about their Bridgewater Bank account without any bank-speak.

While innovation and automation in banking has been non-stop, we know that no amount of automation can replace human touch. In a numbers industry, our top priority is always people. Try us and see for yourself.
