Please join us for our 73rd Annual General Meeting on Thursday, May 4 at 5:30PM at the Summerland Arena Banquet Room (8820 Jubilee Rd East.) Learn more about the credit union, meet the directors and enjoy some light refreshments. We hope to see you there!
New Debit Cards
Paying for items with a debit card is about to get easier! The Summerland Credit Union is now offering an Interac Flash card. This card has a "tap & go" feature that allows you to tap your debit card at the till instead of entering your PIN. If you're interested in getting an Interac Flash debit card, please see us in branch.
Got an extra pile or container of coins in your home? Why not cash them in! There's no need for rolling or sorting. Simply gather up your coins, bring them to the credit union and deposit them in our coin counting machine. From there, put the money into your account, pay down debt or take the cash. The service is free for members, and is available to non-members for a small fee.
