When you belong to a credit union, you are connected to the world’s largest financial network. You are also connected to the international co-operative community — a group of over 1 billion people!
Co-operatives such as credit unions are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operatives believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others.
Credit unions have a history of being tightly connected to the communities they inhabit. They support sports teams, charities, environmental work, education, and more.
Credit union members like you have supported food drives, local families who’ve lost everything in fires, capital campaigns for health centres and cultural facilities, and international appeals for disaster relief, including nearly $200,000 to the Red Cross over the last two years alone.
When you become a credit union member, you join a community of more than 322,000 credit union members, and 57 credit unions, just in the Atlantic Provinces.
