Canadian Credit Union Association

The Canadian Credit Union Association (CCUA) is the national credit union trade association that provides services to Canada’s credit unions, caisses populaires (outside of Quebec), and regional Central organizations. CCUA is distinct in its commitment to cooperative values, and is the first national credit union-governed organization in Canada.

Our Commitment

At CCUA, we aim to foster an inclusive culture where our differences are celebrated and viewed as the strength that drives our collective impact and success. Our goal is to honour and embrace our authentic stories and those of our members. At our core, we respect and appreciate diverse perspectives, and we are committed to the true meaning of cooperative values, rooted in our mission to serve our members and advance our communities.  

Our committees and working groups play an important role in connecting credit unions, Centrals, and our strategic partner organizations. Each committee provides a collaborative forum for the exchange of knowledge and information, enabling our members to provide strategic input to the work of the association.
