From our headquarters at the Credit Union Centre in Vancouver and offices in Toronto and Mississauga, we are the collective voice of our member credit unions. We represent a consumer-oriented, full-service retail financial network of 131 credit unions, holding more than $92 billion in assets and operating 873 branches, serving upwards of three million members.
We act on behalf of our member credit unions in B.C. and Ontario through our relationships with federal and provincial regulatory agencies, our ownership position in Credit Union Central of Canada and through our ties to other provincial centrals and affiliated organizations.
As an organization, we have over 600 employees and hold $13.1 billion in assets. In 2008, we became Central 1 when the provincial credit union centrals of British Columbia and Ontario combined.
We are proud to be a cooperative.
