The Credit Union Difference

Credit unions in Canada come in all sizes and can be found in almost every community. In British Columbia, credit unions have become the first choice for a significant number of residents. In fact, one in three Canadians are members of a credit union and caisse populaire.

The reason for this success can be found in how credit unions operate. As a financial institution they operate democratically and are owned by their customers, also known as members. Our members have access to both personal service and technologies such as ATMs and on-line services. Most importantly, regardless of wealth or background, every member receives the highest level of service.

A Great Place to Work

Known for their progressive people practices and best employer approaches, credit unions can offer you career opportunities where there’s room to pursue your passions and see first-hand how your contributions make a difference. As a credit union employee you can expect:

Respect and appreciation

Become part of a team where you’re treated with value and shown appreciation. Join an organization where employees and customers come first.

Flexibility and growth opportunities

Not only will you find opportunities to grow within your own credit union, you will also develop skills, insight and knowledge that could lead to exciting opportunities across the country, or even around the globe.

Diversity of Experiences

The career paths you will find in the credit union system are as diverse as you will find anywhere. Whether your aspirations are to serve as the CEO of a dynamic credit union or as a functional specialist, credit unions have it!


Due to the nature of credit unions, decisions are made far closer to the point of the customer relationship than is the case with most Canadian financial institutions. Credit union’s take a refreshing common sense approach to banking.
