WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE ‘TRUE NORTH STRONG?’
It means you take pride in investing in the people, communities and businesses that call the North home. It means you’re always willing and able to help those in need. And in our case, it means you work hard every day to prove why you’re the one true financial institution of the North.
That’s why we’re the one true financial institution of the North. If you’re a member, you know what we mean. If you’re not, well, what are you waiting for?
YOU'RE AN OWNER, NOT JUST A CUSTOMER
Our governance structure is one of the things that makes Northern Credit Union different. You’re not just a customer you’re also an owner! Unlike the banks, Northern Credit Union is collectively owned by our members that belong to us. Every member is a shareholder, every shareholder is equal, and we answer to our members exclusively. Members have a say in how our credit union is governed, and in turn our credit union has a real stake in our member’s success.
No matter how much or little you have with Northern, every credit union member has equal ownership and the opportunity to benefit from all the advantages of being a True North Owner.
SO HAVE YOUR SAY!
As a member, your $25.00 membership investment means you have an ownership stake. As a member, you have the right to vote for our Board of Directors, which gives you a voice in the future of our credit union. Our members are our shareholders, and our commitment is to serving you better. As Members, you can also be part of the Board of Directors and help to keep decisions local and based on local realities of our members. If you have the desire and qualifications to strategically guide our organization, we encourage you to put your name forward when nominations for Board of Directors opens annually, in November.
At Northern we know what it’s like to live in the North, because we live here too! We believe that our member/owners are the driving force of our business and the communities we live in! We are committed to keeping your money local – investing in the same local businesses, programs and people that matter to you and we think it’s important to hear from our members to improve the lives our Northern Owners. Can your bank say that?
AN EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER
Many things change over time. A constant, though, is improving our members’ experience. Whether it’s intuitive 24/7 online banking, our full service contact centre, the True North Hub, or the new Northern Promise Loyalty App, we take our members’ financial well-being seriously.
JOINING IS EASY
You can apply online to become a Northern Credit Union member in a matter of minutes. Your one-time $25 membership fee means you’re an owner (as opposed to just another number). So, not only does it give you access to the wealth of products, services and tools we offer. It also means you get a say on the direction of your credit union. That’s what being TRUE NORTH STRONG is all about.
