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.

Preparing you for “what if”

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.
