News Release

The McLennan ATB Branch will close permanently at 12 noon on May 12th,

February 4, 2022

The Town of McLennan received notification on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2022 that the ATB branch in McLennan will be close permanently to the public at 12 noon on May 12, 2022. 

McLennan Town Council was unaware this was being contemplated.  Council met with three representatives from ATB in June of 2021 regarding random branch closures due to staff shortage and ATB stated at that time they were committed to McLennan; no mention of a possible branch closure was made then. 

ATB is a pillar in our community and to hear that they have decided to close the doors without consulting with us first is disappointing.  Mayor, Jason Doris has reached out to ATB Vice President Jeremy Friesen to try and arrange a meeting between Council and ATB to discuss the closure of the branch but they are not willing to meet. ATB states it is committed to serving McLennan but we don’t know what this will look like after the branch closes.

ATB customers that are not pleased with this news are encourage to call ATB to voice their concerns. Calls should be directed to Vice President Jeremy Friesen at 403-620-3886 or Branch Manager Tracy Gagne at 780-837-2219.
