Lindsay Babineau
Vice Chair

Lindsay moved to Abbotsford in 1979 and married his wife Lindsay (no that’s not a typo) and together they have two children - a son who is an engineer in Kamloops and a daughter who is a lawyer in Vancouver.

Lindsay graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture in 1977. This accomplishment led him to a career in banking as an agricultural lender with the Bank of British Columbia. This move sparked the beginning of a 35 year career in the financial services industry, 16 of which were spent in the credit union system at Envision Credit Union, where he held several senior positions both in branch and at the administration office.

He believes cooperation is key to building safe and healthy communities to live, work and play – that’s why volunteering and being involved in the community has always been an important part of his life. Lindsay served as a director of Agrifair, a coach with Abbotsford Minor Soccer, Director of the Abbotsford Airport Authority and Vice President of the United Way of the Fraser Valley. He also held an executive role with a local community group that privately sponsored the settlement of a refuge family in 2016.

Lindsay joined the Aldergrove Credit Union Board of Directors in 2017 and looks forward to sharing his experience in the financial services industry and passion for community to serve members in his new role. He currently serves on the Investment & Loan, Compensation & Human Resources and Nominations Committees.

When he and his wife aren’t boating, you can find them horseback riding or travelling – a new hobby they are enjoying now that they are both recently retired.
