Becoming a Member
Today, 1 in 3 British Columbians already belong to a credit union.
Here's five reasons why:
Members own the credit union
As a Coastal Community member, you don't need deep pockets to feel like you own the place. Because you actually do. With equal vote, equal share and equal say for every member, our credit unions are owned by the very people who choose to belong to them. And anyone can join.
- A full range of financial services
From day-to-day banking to mortgages, investments and more, your Coastal Community has all your financial needs covered. We provide a complete array of financial products and services, with expert advice that always puts your needs first.
- Your money is always protected
At Coastal Community, depositors are 100% protected by the Credit Union Deposit Insurance Corporation of BC, regardless of the size of your account. When it comes to guaranteeing the safety of your deposits in full, there's no place safer than a credit union.
- We've taken service to a higher level
Credit unions have consistently received top marks (and more than a few awards) for the customer service they provide. As a Coastal Community member (and owner), you're entitled to nothing less than the best customer service around. And while it's not uncommon to claim great service, we've got the member satisfaction surveys and service excellence awards to prove it.
- We give back to the community
When credit unions profit, they give those proceeds back to their members and the community at large. This way, we all profit. Each year, BC credit unions give back tens of millions of dollars to their members, as well as the communities they serve. Whether it's scholarships or sponsorships, funding for hospitals, food banks or athletic programs, credit unions are doing their part to strengthen the communities where we live, work and serve.
Your opinion matters to us. Your feedback helps us know when we’re on the right track, or missing the mark, so that we can tweak our products and services to serve you better.
