Become an Owner

At CUA, you're a customer and an owner. As a shareholder, this means that your needs will always come first. Your financial well-being is our top priority, and we customize our products and services to best meet your unique needs.

Opening an account with CUA includes a one-time investment of $5* (1 share at $5.00 each) that stays on deposit in a common share account, and may be redeemed upon the withdrawal of membership from CUA. The CUA common share requirement is not a “fee” to join CUA, but an investment. This investment is retained as equity in CUA on behalf of you, our customer.

With your CUA shares, not only do you have access to all products and services offered by CUA, but you have control in our decision-making. You can elect and vote for the Board of Directors, participate in our annual Member Survey and attend our Annual General Meeting to provide valuable input into the future of CUA.
