What is A Credit Union?

Credit unions are well-regulated, full-service financial institutions. Canada's credit unions put their member’s hopes, dreams, needs, and wants above all else. Canadians who choose to bank with a credit union are choosing to bank with a conscience. Credit unions give back to their members - the people that bank with them - and contribute to their community’s economic, social, and environmental well-being.
