Neither do great partnerships — like the ones we have with the mortgage industry. Born in 1997, we were built to serve brokers and their clients. And 25 years later, we’re still rolling up our sleeves and using our expertise to find alternative mortgage solutions—no matter how unique or challenging the situation.
Thank you to our brokers for banking on us since day one. We look forward to many more years of continued success together. Our anniversary may be silver, but our standard for serving people will always be gold. We’re just getting started.
We specialize in self-employed clients, those who earn income in less conventional ways and those who have bruised credit. After 25 years, we’ve mastered seeing beyond the paperwork. We understand the business and know how to get your deals done.
Our award-winning team of service-obsessed and solution-oriented experts are here to help you and your clients succeed.Talk to an expert
We are a Canadian Schedule I chartered bank with Western Canadian roots. We’re financial service experts with flexible mindsets. Being a smaller bank makes us nimble, and that means we can respond quickly with innovative approaches that don’t need to go through multiple levels of approvals. This means less time managing logistics and more time focussed on you and our ‘why’ – helping you succeed.
Treating our clients well is another one of our passions. While innovation and automation in banking have been non-stop, we know that no amount of automation can replace the human touch. Call us old school, but we believe in treating you like family. We share these values with our parent company, the Alberta Motor Association. That includes having honest, respectful conversations without any bank-speak.
The communication was excellent, the pricing favourable and the underwriter worked with me to get the deal done and come up with solutions when we encountered a few hiccups.
My client required special consideration based on circumstances beyond their control. Bridgewater carefully considered all angles and made a strong argument to risk analysis for a positive response. Success!
They were exceptional at getting this challenging deal done on time.
In Bridgewater Bank's case, they were very clear on everything. It gave my client the opportunity to get this short-term solution done which will help her future immensely.
My underwriter keeps me updated at all stages and helps get the deal done! They are wonderful to work with.
Bridgewater Bank has a very positive attitude and quick responses to my emails, and quick approvals are such a pleasant surprise in this rushed, high demand market.
I received commitment within 24 hours and the underwriter was always quick to respond to my emails and inquiries.
Great underwriting, make-sense lending, flexible with documentation as long as it provided details, great LTV.
The BDM was always available when I needed [them] the most. The support was there prior to the approval and even right at closing when the client was at the lawyer's office.
My BDM and underwriters at Bridgewater Bank make it clear, by their efforts, they are willing to work to help put a deal together.
