Becoming a Member

It's Better to be a Member

Did you know:

Our profits profit you - Credit unions are co-operative financial institutions. When you open an account with us, you become a member and an owner, not just an account holder. Our profits go back to you, helping you hold on to more of your money, and back to the communities we serve through Community Sponsorship.

We treat you better - Credit unions believe in earning a profit, but not at the expense of our members. Don’t just take our word for it! Credit unions have won numerous Ipsos Best Banking Awards - including Best in Customer Service Excellence for the past 13 years in a row.

Better for business - Credit unions outperform Canada’s banks when it comes to serving the needs of small and medium sized businesses! We consistently rank #1 in the Battle of the Banks survey by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB).

Better access to your money - In addition to your local branch, each credit union provides online banking services, telephone banking and access to one of Canada’s largest networks of surcharge-free ATMs.

Are you ready for better?



Some choices matter—and that includes choosing where you bank.

When you choose SASCU, you are not only choosing competitive products and services, all the security and convenience of a traditional financial institution, and financial advice you can trust.

You are also choosing to be part of something great.  An organization that works to strengthen your community. Our community.

Plus, as a cooperative, our members are also our shareholders. Each year, share in the profits though our Patronage Rebate program. To be a Member, you will purchase five Equity Shares at $1/share ($5 total). If you ever decide to stop being a member, the Equity Shares are returned to you, plus any dividends earned.

Anyone can join. It’s easy! Fill out our online application or visit a SASCU branch.
