At Unity Credit Union, one of our strengths is that we are local. We understand what is happening in our community because we live here too. We understand the challenges Mother Nature has provided with extreme heat and little to no moisture. We understand and see the impact on your crops, pastures, and livestock operations. We also understand how difficult this can be for our members because we are your neighbours. Unity Credit Union invests in and has a strong connection to our local communities. We are here for you in good times, but we are also here for you in "not so great" times, such as we are currently faced with.
Unity Credit Union offers flexible options and tailored solutions to help you through these circumstances. Please contact us to see what options may be available for you. We want to hear your questions and help determine what may be best for you in these difficult times.
Give us a call at 1-306-228-2688 or visit us at Unity Credit Union.
We're here to help—as we always have been.
