Member PAC Reset Capability

For those you looking to change their password after the launch of MFA, we kindly ask you to set up MFA for your account first. This ensures that even if someone gains access to your password, they won’t be able to access your account without the additional verification steps provided by MFA.

Membership Dues Are Getting an Overhaul

Each year, we get several questions from members about their annual dues and how we can make it easier for members to manage their dues payment. To answer this request, in 2024, we will be changing membership dues from a one-time annual fee to a small monthly fee of $1.25/month. This new fee will automatically be withdrawn from your account each month and applied to your annual membership dues. For 2023, membership dues will be withdrawn on November 30.


What Are Membership Dues?

Membership Dues are a small fee ($15.00 for 2023) that all Member-Owners are charged each year. These fees are paid annually by credit unions on a national and provincial level.

What are Membership Dues used for?

Membership Dues allow us to provide our Member-Owners with access to a wide range of products and services including INTERAC® for on-the-go purchases, free access to ATMs on THE EXCHANGE® Network, and our wide range of VISA® cards. It also supports the ongoing security of your accounts online, regulatory reporting, anti-money laundering monitoring, and much more. In short, they help support the many systems and partnerships that set credit unions apart from the big banks.

Do my dues help anywhere else?

You betcha. Annual Membership Dues also help to support the Ontario Credit Union Foundation (OCUF) which manages funds and disbursements to registered charities across Ontario including the annual CU Succeed bursary, which provides scholarships for financially deserving youth across Ontario. Pretty great, right?

Big things through small actions

The power of annual Membership Dues is that by each Member-Owner making a small investment in the credit union, everyone benefits for years to come. It’s the credit union (that means you) doing what it does best – working together to create something truly exceptional!
