Co-operative banking is about putting you first.
So to personalize your visit to this site we’d love you to answer 4 fun questions.
Then watch what happens.
Co-operative banking at a credit union is banking that offers you all the products, services and security you need to successfully manage your banking life.
With one very powerful difference.
Co-operative banking is based on the idea that profits should have a higher purpose. They should be returned to you in the form of great rates and better service. And they should be put back into the community where you live to do good.
That our job is to achieve financial freedom for our Members.
That profits have a higher purpose.
They should benefit the people we are here to serve, our Members.
That Main Street is more important than Wall Street.
That there is no better place to invest
than in the communities we live in.
That our Members have every right to expect the very best products and service we can deliver. After all, they’re also our owners.
As a Member and Owner you’ll have every right to expect a very different kind of banking relationship, the kind that focuses on what’s right for you, instead of what someone wants to sell you. You can expect expert financial advice that places your best interests first.
Ontario Credit Union Members enjoy the co-operative banking difference.
The person I dealt with took the time to build a financial plan that was realistic and manageable. A few short months later, my partner and I have paid off considerable debt and begun saving for our home.
When I fell on hard times, Meridian was there for me. They took action immediately, gave me straight advice and treated me as a person, not a number. I will never forget having a genuine partner to guide me through this.
What I like about Alterna Savings is that you're not just another account or file folder - you're a Member, a part of a community. When it comes to your money it's so important to trust the people you invest with or borrow from and I get that with Alterna Savings.
