Become an Owner

Owned by Our Members

If you want the opportunity to become involved in the ownership and control of your own financial institution, then a membership in Cape Breton Credit Union is for you. As a member, you have the right to vote at meetings on issues critical to your credit union.

What is a Credit Union?

A credit union is a full service co-operative financial institution owned by the people who use its services. Members have equal voting rights and participate in decisions affecting the credit union. Member input and guidance occurs through the Board of Directors whose role is to develop and assure adherence to credit union policies.

Putting members first is our credit union’s number one priority. That means developing products and services to help you achieve your financial goals.

Democratic Control

Credit union members have an equal say in decisions because credit unions operate on democratic principles….one member – one vote.

How to become a member

It’s easy to become a member. Just open a savings account and, as required by our by-laws, agree to maintain a balance of at least $25 on deposit. This membership commitment gives you the opportunity to provide input into the direction of the credit union by attending our Annual General Meeting, joining a committee, or becoming a member of our Board of Directors.
