Making Ottawa Strong.
As part of the largest cooperative financial group in Canada, we share and promote a concept of a member-owned, democratically administered financial institution that puts quality member care as our top priority. Building on our cooperative values and inspiring our members' trust, we look to capitalize on our financial strength and contribute to Ottawa's long-term, sustainable prosperity.
We drive the community forward.
As a member-owned financial institution, we are rooted in Ottawa and dedicated to building a stronger local economy. In the past 4 years, we’ve given back over $455,000 in donations, grants and sponsorships to local organizations in the fields of health, culture, economic development and education. Our efforts help promote a healthier, more vibrant community.
Our goal is to improve the financial well-being of all our members, by offering the best financial guidance, competitive banking products and cutting-edge technology that offer more control and freedom.
