Working in partnership with governments at all levels allows credit unions to promote public policy solutions that contribute to economic growth, banking innovation, social impact and greater community prosperity.
CCUA is the voice of credit unions to the federal government. We rely on solid research, grassroots advocacy and direct representation to legislators and officials.
Read our submissions to government departments and statements to parliamentary committees on important matters for credit unions.
Credit union staff and their directors are our best advocates to ensure MPs understand how credit unions do banking differently. CCUA provides grassroots advocates with government relations training and resources through the CU Nation® advocacy network and our online advocacy centre.
Staff and directors of CCUA-affiliated
credit unions and caisses populaires can access professional advocacy resources by joining our grassroots network.
