To get started you’ll need to have a few things ready for us to open your membership. Please bring the following:
- Current Identification – Either a Driver’s License, Provincial Identification Card, Canadian Passport, or Permanent Canadian Resident Card. The identification must not be expired
- Social Insurance Number
- Membership Shares - When you join any credit union, you need to make a one-time purchase of membership shares, $5 for Junior members (under 19 years old) or $25 for adult members. This is required to make you a member-owner, however the share money is still yours and will be returned if you ever choose to close your accounts.
New to Town, We Make it Easy
If you are currently a member of another credit union and moving to our area we participate in a convenient service called the Member Referral Program. Simply visit your current credit union and let them know that you would like to become a member of the Summerland Credit Union. We’ll have everything waiting for you when you arrive. Moving is hectic enough, let us help you take moving your accounts off your list of things to do. This service is convenient and free.
