In July, 1944, Summerland & District Credit Union was founded by ten people who pooled their resources and managed to collect $17.50 — little money but plenty of foresight. They saw an alternative to traditional banking methods: people working together to reach their goals. Sharing knowledge skills and energy, these pioneers built a foundation based on the principle of sound financial management.
People helping people! That’s the essence of your credit union and your community. For over sixty years, Summerland & District Credit Union has been helping people buy their first car, their first home, start new businesses, send the kids to college and save for their future — in addition to providing job opportunities for people of the area. In the coming years, we expect to do more of the same, as our first priority will always be people. At your credit union, you are not just an account number. You are a member, an owner, a partner, and a neighbour.
