Jaklin Mehrabian

I have been a member for over ten years and the credit union has been there when I needed them the most. They are very helpful and try to get the best deal for their members. I also have my car insurance with The Personal and got a great deal.
 

Susan Sayewell

Excellent, prompt service! I am able to access my account with a bank card, very convenient.
 

LouAnn Elliot

It is very convenient with prompt service always. They pay high interest on their products and the deduction from my pay is excellent.

TECU will be sponsoring a young member to take part in various week-long programs throughout the summer of 2017!  This lucky young member will have the opportunity to spend a week at one of the Ontario Co-operative Association's Cooperative Young Leaders (CYL) summer camp programs.

CYL is a week-long summer leadership program that will change your life. Young people will experience traditional camp activities while improving team building skills and learning about co-operatives and the co-operative principles. CYL is an experience that goes beyond camp and we can help with ongoing learning and development!

Member Education

Our members' personal development is important to us. We believe that knowledge and awareness of issues that impact our members is extremely important in order that our members can lead more productive and happy lives. To encourage our members to pursue higher education and foster an environment for personal growth, we offer the following Grant:

Marty Grubb Leadership Award - Click here for more information. To help prepare our young student members for the future. Deadline for all applications is August 31, 2017, winner to be announced before September 29th, 2017.  Please click here for an application. 


In addition to our grant, we aim to keep our members up to date. We have frequent monthly on-site events and we visit our members at locations where we do not offer a branch. We want to keep you informed about products and services that can be of use to you like Home and Auto Insurance through The Personal. We also have demo days where members have a chance of getting a ‘hands on look’ at some of the features that we offer like Q-trade on-line investing. We publish monthly informational newsletters and frequently update our website to ensure relevant information is always at your fingertips. Our website features a Member Alerts section which informs you about the latest security issues and we also have calculators to help you achieve your goals, whether they would be for savings, loans or even to help you with your home budget Calculators.

We are also aware that not every situation fits in a mould and sometimes we need professional guidance to help us in time of need. As a result we have coordinated our efforts with professionals to bring you Ask an Expert Day. In the past our experts have provided our members advice on matrimonial law, identity theft, estate planning and wealth management matters and all free of charge! Check our Events Calendar often for a complete itinerary of all the events that may be of interest to you. If you want to see what we have done in the past, click here.
