With more than 65 years of banking history, Meridian is the largest Credit Union in Ontario delivering a full range of financial services to individuals and businesses.
With our recent amalgamation with Desjardins Credit Union, Meridian now has $8 billion in assets under administration and serves 263,000 Members and more than 15,000 businesses through 61 branches and eight commercial business centres across Ontario.
With more than 1,100 employees, Meridian's customer service is rated among the top banks and credit unions across North America. Every week, we ask our Members how we’re doing and we act on what they tell us.
What sets us apart from other financial institutions is our focus on neighbourhood banking. At our retail locations, branch managers make decisions on loans, mortgages, lines of credit and sponsorships – not at head office.
At Meridian's business centres, our local focus enables Members to work with account managers who know the community intimately. This means that we can offer flexible, common sense business solutions.
When investing with Meridian's wealth management professionals, that same neighbourhood banking focus translates into a respectful, straightforward conversation about products that best suit Members’ needs and financial goals.
Meridian has continued to be guided by the cooperative principles on which it was founded. It is owned by its Members, who have the right to vote for the Board of Directors and have a say in the credit union’s policies and direction. Our Members’ money is reinvested in our Members’ communities, creating jobs and building businesses where our Members live.
Through the Good Neighbour Program, Meridian’s corporate social responsibility program, we help build strong, vibrant, inclusive communities. As part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility, Meridian is also an employer of choice and was selected by Maclean’s Magazine in 2009 and again in 2010 as one of Canada’s Top 100 employers.
