Canadian Credit Union Association

By choosing to bank with a credit union, you 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.

Credit unions keep money in Canadians’ pockets

Credit unions’ commitment to members’ financial well-being and cooperative model helps Canadians to hold on to more of their money by returning profits to members through profit sharing and low/no fees, through community investments in the form of donations, scholarships and other initiatives and through a national network of surcharge-free ATMs.

You’re an owner, not just a customer

Credit unions are owned by their members – the people who bank with them. All members have an equal say in how their credit union operates, no matter how much or little you have in your account. Members can voice their concerns and vote on the issues that matter to them.
