History & philosophy

In the early 1900s, average working Canadians had little access to the banks. Credit unions, organized locally according to cooperative models, were born in this country as a result.  The first credit union was created in Levis, Quebec in 1900 when 80 people banded together as a caisse populaire.

By the early 1940s, credit unions had been established across Canada, primarily by groups of Canadians with common work or life interests.  And the rest is history — as the system now employs over 65,000 people serving 11 million members, and manages assets of over $200 billion.

Our history is the foundation of our philosophy: that everyone deserves an opportunity to achieve financial well-being; that working together, cooperatively, works for the good of all; and that giving back to communities is a key rationale for profitable operations.

Cooperative principles

  • Voluntary and open membership
  • Democratic member control
  • Member economic participation (through member shares)
  • Autonomy and independence (self-help organizations controlled by members)
  • Education, training and information (for members, staff and directors)
  • Cooperation among cooperatives (working together locally, regionally, nationally and internationally)
  • Concern for community
