The Power of Ownership

Local Ownership and Control

Belonging to a credit union means that you are more than a customer - an owner - and as an owner you get to influence the progress of your business. There is a voluntary Board of Directors that you elect with your right to vote at the Annual General Meeting. All decisions are made locally, by people who live in and understand your local community. As neighbours, living and working in the same community, Valley Credit Union Valley Credit Unionoffers all the financial services you require with a big difference - pride in knowing all monies stay here in our own communities working for your own economic benefit. You'll enjoy a flexible approach to business and responsiveness to local concerns. All things being equal, why would you not choose a financial institution where the very ownership structure is designed to focus on, and is sensitive to, your needs?

Unique Benefits

Credit union members are both customers and owners. As a customer, you receive the services you want and as an owner you enjoy a return on your share investment in the form of competitive rates, value costs for premium services, and local control of your own financial institution.
