What's a Credit Union?

A credit union is a full service co-operative financial institution owned by the people who use its services.

Why a Credit Union?

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.

Belonging to a credit union means that you are more than a customer - you are an owner - and as an owner you get to influence the progress of your business. There is a voluntary Board of Directors whose role is to develop and assure adherence to credit union policies. Directors are selceted by you, the members, 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, CBCU Cape Breton 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. Putting members first is our credit union’s number one priority. That means developing products and services to help you achieve your financial goals.

Become a Member

It’s easy to become a member. Just open a chequing or savings account and, as required by our by-laws, deposit $25 into an Equity Share Account. This Equity Share entitles you membership and allows 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! It's that easy!
