The Credit Union Difference
A credit union is a financial co-operative whose fundamental operating principle is democratic ownership. One member, one vote, regardless of the amount of business you do with us. That means that as a credit union member you have a voice in setting the credit union’s direction. You may also seek election to the credit union’s board of directors.
Supporting the local community is a foremost value and principal of Summerland Credit Union. We take pride in our exemplary record of community service and involvement supporting charitable programs and activities that enhance the well-being and quality of life for all members of our community. It is a privilege to be able to do our part in the community, whether it be through academic bursaries, supporting local sports groups or helping non-profit organizations with their fundraising endeavors. Watch for our staff volunteers and our credit union tent at community events year-round.
