About Us

Your Credit Union

 

Established in 1950, Your Credit Union began serving members by offering only loans, savings and chequing accounts. Today, members can find a variety of products and services for all their personal and business financial needs.

Our commitment to the well-being of our members extends beyond the provision of products and services. It reaches our communities, too. Local credit unions have a long, distinguished history of reflection the strength of their co-operative values in building stronger communities.

Members own a part of Your Credit Union and have a say in how our organization is run by exercising their right to vote for a democratically elected Board of Directors.
