We put the ‘union’
in ‘credit union’.
Our roots run deep in the labour movement.
In fact, Community Savings was created by the labour movement. Since 1944, we’ve been helping union members and union members achieve financial success with innovative products and personalized service.
As BC’s largest fully unionized credit union we take pride in our union roots and philosophy:
- All of our support, technical, and branch staff are fully unionized
The majority of our board members are well known and respected leaders within the union movement
We have a clear “buy union” policy that is unshakable
We actively sponsor and participate in union events, programs, fundraisers, and trade shows throughout BC such as the CLC Winter School and the Union Protein Project
We return a minimum of 1% of after-tax profits to the people and communities we serve
