WE’RE DOING THE ORDINARY, EXTRAORDINARILY
 
Credit unions are doing more than just banking.
 
We’re teaching school children about financial literacy.  We’re helping our members make investments that are more socially responsible.  We’re reducing our impact on the environment.  And we’re making a difference for causes in our communities.
 
Canada’s credit unions are doing the ordinary, extraordinarily.  It’s what we’ve been doing all along.  You can find out more by keeping up with our blog and reading our Success Stories.
