I am happy to report that our team is in good health and that we are continuing to provide the same level of service to members – our branches are open, we are processing your transactions, applications, and responding to your day-to-day needs.

Public health authorities are telling us that the risk of contracting this illness remains low, and our goal is to keep our branches open for as long as this remains the case.

  • Members have access to over 4,000 Ding free ATMs
  • Transfer funds with Me-to-Me or Interac e-transfers
