Where we came from

Started by farmers and fishermen in 1933

Kitchen meetings were held across rural Nova Scotia discussing the need for a credit union to help empower individuals who had difficulty accessing credit. Community members would put funds on deposit to lend out to those who did not have access to capital. This kept funds in the community, helping it grow and prosper—a key credit union aim.
