Northern Credit Union amalgamates with ONR Employees’ Credit UnionTuesday, September 10, 2013 by: Kate AdamsNorthern Credit Union
Northern Credit Union welcomes new members from ONR Employees Credit Union, who voted overwhelmingly in favour of an amalgamation.
“We’re really pleased to have reached this agreement,” says Mac Davidson, Chair of Northern Credit Union’s Board of Directors. “Northern is dedicated to serving people and businesses across the North, and we look forward to providing our full range of products and services to members joining us from ONR Employees’ Credit Union.”
Chris Guertin, Chair of the Board for ONR Employees’ Credit Union, agrees that the merger will have a very positive impact on his credit union’s members. “Northern has had a very strong presence in the North Bay area, and indeed across Northern Ontario, for many years”, says Guertin. “Our Board has been fully supportive of this initiative from the outset, and we’re grateful to representatives from both credit unions for their hard working in bringing the amalgamation to a successful conclusion. We know that our members will be well looked after.”
Northern’s new brand – True North Strong – is reflective of their strategy to keep dollars in the North, supporting local businesses and the many communities they live and work in. With well-trained staff in branches from Arnprior to Timmins to Thunder Bay, as well as mobile and online options, Northern provides members a wide array of solutions for their financial needs.
