Get to know Meridian
Who we are
Since our founding, Meridian’s commitment to helping every Member achieve their best life has never wavered. By focusing on what is at the heart of our Members’ lives — their families, homes, businesses, and communities — we are working to fulfill a role as partner, advisor, and supporter.
As Ontario’s largest credit union, with more than 365,000 Members, we’re committed to providing exceptional banking services and advice. We also have a role to play that goes beyond financial services. Our commitment to Members and communities is rooted in this fundamental belief.
Unlike some of the larger financial institutions, we don’t have public shareholders. Our Members are owners - that means that any profit we make goes back into improving our products and services, and innovating new ways to enhance our Members' lives.
By helping Members build overall resilience, we hope to make the tough moments a little less tough, and the good moments a little more great. By doing this together, Canadians can truly achieve better lives.
What makes us different
Meridian offers similar products and services to that of a big bank, with a more personal touch. We’re deeply committed to our communities and Members. We’re always finding new ways to help - like innovative features, community programs, fantastic service, and really great rates.
Financial wellness is a feeling of security about your financial future. It’s the freedom to make choices that allow you to enjoy life. Get started on your journey towards improved financial health today.
We're committed to communities
Meridian’s dedication to helping Canadians goes beyond banking.
Thriving communities are essential to the individual well-being of our Members and the overall well-being of Canadians. That’s why we invest portions of our profits in financial literacy, local community organizations, environmental initiatives, co-op programs, and more. We also match our employees' donations and empower them to get more involved in volunteering.
Being a good corporate citizen is at the heart of our business; it’s been an integral part of who we are for over 75 years. In keeping with our corporate strategy, Meridian for Good, we’re committed to the key ESG initiatives that are essential to us and to the communities we serve.
