We’re a straight-talking financial partner who understands the real trials and financial realities of our members' lives today. We’re the kind of partner who would rather use our profits to fuel local growth than let them leave the communities we belong to. We’re the kind of ally that kicks ‘cookie cutter’ solutions to the curb to lay out personalized solutions that actually meet your needs. We’re all about being a good neighbour.
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.
At YNCU, we know thinking about starting post-secondary education is stressful, especially when thinking about how you’re going to pay for it. The Ontario Credit Union Foundation is providing funding for Ontarians looking to focus their studies in academic, vocational, or technical at an accredited post-secondary institution in Canada or abroad.
We had the opportunity to sit down with Kim Boudreau, Certified Financial Planner at YNCU, to discuss how financial professionals can help women become more financially independent and access the same financial literacy opportunities as men. Kim shares her knowledge about the history of women and money, why women are not on the same playing field as men, and what can be done about it.
