The credit union difference

Credit unions have local, democratic leadership, which connects them to their communities and members in ways that banks simply can’t match. There are approximately 880 credit unions across Canada and 1,430 caisses populaires, the francophone counterpart. Each credit union is run by a group of elected Board of Directors.

Beyond leadership and governance, what sets us apart from banks is accountability, security, and our Member First promise.



Bank execs are accountable to the investors, their primary goal is to maximize profits. We are accountable to you, our goal is to make banking and financial success as simple and affordable as we can.



BC Credit Union Deposits are 100% guaranteed by the Credit Union Deposit Insurance Corporation of British Columbia.
