Credit unions are co-operative financial institutions, owned by the members.
The Atlantic Provinces credit union system proudly provides a full range of products and services to its members throughout the region. Credit Unions, rooted in the communities they serve, have been an integral part of community life and have contributed to Atlantic communities since their inception over 75 years ago.Operating under co-operative/credit union principles, credit unions in New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia have experienced impressive growth over the past years, through economically challenging times. Credit unions currently service an Atlantic membership in excess of 335,000, and manage financial assets in excess of $3.9 billion. Credit unions play a significant role in the economic fabric of Atlantic communities.
