Member Benefits

At GVC Credit Union, you are not just a customer; you are a member-owner and a shareholder. And membership with a credit union means so much more!

Be Part of the Cooperative Movement

Belonging to GVC Credit Union, a financial cooperative, means that you will be part of the growing cooperative movement. Cooperatives are based on the assumption that there is strength in mutual self-help and that the cooperative has a collective responsibility for the well-being of its members. In addition, individual cooperatives strive to create a united cooperative movement, by working with other cooperatives, to improve the collective well-being.

Share in the Success

In 1997, GVC Credit Union introduced a new class of shares; Patronage Equity Shares. These shares were designed to enable the credit union to share it's earnings with our member-owners according to the amount of business done with the credit union; their "patronage". For example, you may have a month of chequing account service charges and a percentage of the interest that you paid on a personal consumer loan rebated to you in the form of Patronage Equity Shares. Whatever the formula, it's a win-win situation for you and your credit union!
