Credit Union Central of Canada (Canadian Central) is the national trade association for the Canadian credit union system. Incorporated, in 1953, by a special act of Parliament, and regulated under the Cooperative Credit Associations Act (Canada), Canadian Central provides a National Forum, a National Voice and National Services to support and expand the Canadian credit union system.
Canadian Central’s board is comprised of ten directors, appointed by five Central member-shareholders. A focused committee structure, encompassing Finance, Legislative Affairs, Risk Management, and Lending supports Canadian Central’s role as an active and effective trade association. In support of national initiatives, and to facilitate knowledge transfer, committee members from the provincial/regional Centrals and individual credit unions work on committee activities to further the aims of the system overall.
Canadian Central employs 50 staff members who deliver trade association services from offices in Toronto and Ottawa. The Ottawa team is focused on increasing our policy and advocacy activities and our influence in the area of Federal Government relations. The Toronto office is also home to CUSOURCE® Credit Union Knowledge Network, the national learning and development facility for the credit union system.
