About us

We put people above all.

Whatever your hopes, dreams, needs and wants are: that’s what we put first.

Banking is just how we help you make it happen.

About Us

We are a financial services provider run on principles.

We are like a bank in many ways, we are a financial services provider and we are open to everyone. Like banks, we are full service. From loans to investments, everyday banking to financial planning and everything in between, we have you covered. Plus, we have the same convenient access.

But we are different! Different by design.

Credit unions are run on principles using our profits for your good – not our pockets! Our profits go back to customers:

We're more than numbers.

But here they are. 


With $934M in managed assets, we are strong and secure.


With an ATM network bigger than most banks, our members have access to 1000+ ding-free ATMs.


Of our profits are used for your good - not our pockets. 


We are 100% owned and led by our members - that's why we put members first.  That's why we always have your best interests at heart.


The number of Canadians credit unions serve; we alone serve over 8,900 in our local communities.


The year we began making lives better, brighter and stronger.

Experience values-based, co-operative banking

It's why we're more than just numbers.
