YNCU acknowledges the history of the traditional territory on which it operates. YNCU is headquartered on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee Peoples as well as on Robinson-Huron Treaty territory, traditional territory of the Anishnaabeg, specifically the Garden River and Batchewana First Nations, as well as Métis People. We recognize our responsibility to serve as stewards for the land and respect and honour the long standing relationships of the original caretakers who came before us.
This land acknowledgement is a small act of reconciliation on behalf of YNCU to our First Nations community members. If you have any suggestions for this land acknowledgment, or for how we can better act as stewards of respect and reconciliation, please click here to use our Feedback form.

Did you know the first credit union in Canada was nicknamed “the people’s bank”? This is because credit unions have always been centred around a cooperative model, where members are able to make decisions about their money. Credit unions were created with the specific intention to meet societal needs. They are focused on their members’ financial well-being. These financial institutions are very different from traditional banks.
