Our History

In 1948, our banking institution first opened its doors to customers at the Dockyard Credit Union location in Halifax. Since then, the financial well-being of our customers has always been a top priority.

Today, with total assets in excess of $1 billion and branches spanning from Cole Harbour to Tantallon, a Corporate Office, Commercial Lending and a dedicated Customer Contact Centre, we continue to provide flexible products, personalized service and quick decisions for our members, opening the door to a brighter financial future for everyday people.

For 75 years and counting, we look forward to continuing to build a stronger community, one customer at a time.
