With more than 65 years of banking history, Meridian is the largest credit union in Ontario. We combine our extensive experience with a commitment to provide our Members with the very latest financial products and services, along with the technology to access their money anytime and anywhere they want.
So what sets us apart from other banks and credit unions? Our Member-first approach to banking is a good place to start. For instance, at our retail locations Branch Managers make decisions locally on loans, mortgages, lines of credit and sponsorships. Meanwhile, at Meridian's business centres, our local focus enables Members to work with account managers who have an intimate knowledge of the community. That means we can offer flexible, common sense business solutions that are delivered in a timely fashion.
When investing with Meridian's CFCP-accredited Wealth Management Professionals, this very same focus on neighbourhood banking translates into an unbiased, straightforward conversation about products that best suit Members’ needs and financial goals.
Meridian is guided by the cooperative principles on which it was founded. It’s owned by you—our Members—who have the right to vote for the Board of Directors and have a say in policies and directions. Members’ money is reinvested in their respective communities, creating jobs and building businesses where they live. Meridian is also dedicated to the communities we live in. Through the Good Neighbour Program, our corporate social responsibility program, we help build strong, vibrant, inclusive communities.
That’s the Meridian Difference. It’s how we treat our Members. How we serve their financial needs. How we strive to improve the neighbourhoods and communities we live in. How we’re:
When your friend or family member opens their account, make sure they give us your name, telephone number and postal code, and you’ll both receive a $50 credit by direct deposit to an account specified by the Member. It’s that simple! To find out more, click here.
