Why Become A Member
Members are owners
Ukrainian Credit Union Limited is a member-owned financial institution. As a member of UCU you join over 10 million Canadians who have discovered the advantage of a dividend bearing, credit union membership.
Members have an influence
Members-owners have a vote and a voice in the management of their credit union. You can also be elected to work on UCU`s committees or become a member of the Board of Directors. As a result, credit unions are innovative and quick to respond to members needs.
Access to a full range of services
From mortgages to small business loans, wealth management to financial advice, UCU provides the same range of products and services banks do; however, our flexible terms and conditions make them more accessible to you.
Better protection for your money
As a UCU member, up to $100,000 of your deposits are protected by the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario (DICO).
Access to innovative and flexible financial products
Credit unions are at the cutting edge of banking technology, responding to our members` financial needs. Credit unions were first to offer automated teller machines (ATMs) in 1976, customer loans, daily interest savings, and flexible mortgage payments. Banks follow where we lead.
You get preferential treatment
Every member at UCU gets the same friendly, knowledgeable and warm service as well as access to a full line of fine-tuned financial services.
To help your community
Every year UCU donates and/or sponsors many youth, cultural, church groups, charitable, and community-based organizations. Our employees volunteer their time and talents to a wide range of community initiatives.
That is why 22,000 people have already chosen UCU to be home for all their financial needs.
