As we move through 2021, our six credit unions continue working through the detailed process of examining a potential merger. Unsurprisingly, the events of 2020 interrupted our original timelines. When the pandemic first became a reality, we temporarily put our meetings on hold. Our goals quickly became the health and safety of our employees, members and communities while continuing to provide banking services.
Throughout the process we maintained strong communication and continue to share pandemic response information between our respective operations.
As the year progressed, our credit union became very familiar and comfortable operating under these altered conditions, and in September, we resumed the merger conversation with our peers through virtual meetings. We even collaborated on a region wide, online, shop local effort.

Despite the interruption, we all remain committed to the process and principles in place and continue to explore the potential of merging our six operations. Should we deem it of benefit to our employees, members and our communities, we will take the next appropriate steps to bring that important information to you, the members. We will be active in our communication, and the final decision will rest on a member vote.
The process is dynamic, and the best way to learn more and stay up to date is to visit exploringstrengthandunity.ca.
