For individuals

CUA offers comparable deposit protection to what is available to chartered bank customers.  Member deposits are insured on a range of accounts including primary savings and chequing accounts, money held in a joint savings account, funds held in a trust account and all TFSA, RRSP, RRIF or RESP funds up to a maximum of $250,000 per account type.  Coverage can be maximized by choosing a mix of investment and savings options, ensuring funds are not only secured but also are generating interest for the future.  CUA works diligently to ensure the funds are arranged expertly and managed responsibly. 

For businesses

As a small business with more than 70 years of sustained growth and profitability, CUA understands the importance of having an effective cash flow strategy and accessing capital when a business needs it for expenses, expansion or emergencies.  That’s why CUA is proud to offer extremely competitive rates and greater flexibility when compared to the chartered banks.  CUA’s deposit services provide flexible terms that fit the unique needs of every business, ensuring funds are where they’re needed when they’re needed most.  By choosing CUA, businesses can count on having the flexibility required to thrive.  Similar to individual insurance coverage, commercial member deposits are insured up to $250,000.
