  • Minimizes the need to carry cash.
  • Once activated with a PIN (personal identification number) your MEMBER CARD® debit card provides convenient access to your chequing and savings accounts at ATMs and Interac® direct payment services at participating merchants.

Branch ATMs

Each of our branches is equipped with a full-service ATM, and our Ancaster and Acton branch locations also have a drive-thru ATM. Your Tandia account is also accessible to you with no addtional fees at thousands of ATMs across Canada.

A National Surcharge-Free ATM Network

THE EXCHANGE® is a network of banks and credit unions that have come together and agreed to never charge each other’s cardholders any surcharge fees—at thousands of ATMs across Canada.

As a proprietary ATM network, THE EXCHANGE® Network offers the only inter-institutional, full-function ATM network in Canada.

Through this partnership, you can make surcharge-free withdrawals, deposits or PIN changes, Canada-wide. You will never pay any surcharge fees to access your own money even if you use another member institution’s ATM network. Of course, you still have to pay your normal account fees but that’s it, nothing extra.

So long as the ATM you are using is part of THE EXCHANGE® Network, bank customers can use credit union ATMs and Credit Union members can use bank ATMs, surcharge-free. Just look for ATMs with THE EXCHANGE® logo.

Learn more about THE EXCHANGE® Network.

US Accel® Point of Sale Network

Many financial institutions also offer access to the Accel Point of Sale (POS) debit network in the United States. The Accel network is one of the largest POS networks in the United States with more than 3,000,000 merchant locations in the network.

The Accel network in the United States works exactly the same way debit card purchases work at home. Purchases are paid for by swiping or inserting your debit card and verifying the transaction with your confidential PIN. As an added value, a cash back option is also available at the majority of merchants.

Interact Flash

MEMBER CARD® debit cards with Interac® Flash are being issued by Tandia as of November 2016. Interac Inc. has issued an awareness brochure for handy reference, and here are some frequently asked questions about the new Interac Flash feature.

1. What is Interac Flash?

Interac Flash is the contactless payment functionality technology that is being added to new Tandia MEMBER CARD debit cards. It allows you to pay for smaller purchases faster and easier by just holding up your Flash-enabled debit card to a point of sale terminal that supports this contactless functionality. The purchase will automatically be deducted from your primary transaction account without having to insert your card in the chip reader or use your PIN (Personal Identification Number).

You don’t HAVE to use Interac Flash for smaller purchases – you can continue to insert your card and use your chip/PIN for any point-of-sale transaction - it is simply an added payment convenience available if and whenever you choose to use it.

2. How do I use my new Interac Flash debit card?

It’s important to know that when you receive your new Interac Flash card and use it for the first time, that you must insert your card and use your PIN for the first transaction. Interac Flash will then be activated for future transactions.

Additionally, the store’s point of sale terminal must support this form of contactless payment. Look for the contactless logo on the device screen or you can ask the business if they accept Interac Flash. Then, simply hold your card on the supporting reader and a beep and/or an approved message on the screen will indicate that your transaction has been completed and funds have been immediately debited from your account.

3. How secure is Interac Flash?

There are several security features in place that ensure Interac Flash debit cards are safe. Interac Flash leverages secure chip processing. This protects Interac Flash against skimming, counterfeiting and transaction replay types of fraud, including electronic pick-pocketing. Interac Flash technology protects your card from being copied and counterfeited.

Consumers are fully protected with Interac Zero Liability Policy that allows for 100% reimbursement of funds if your card is lost or stolen.

In addition, as an added security measure to ensure that your card is in your possession, the point of sale terminal will randomly and from time to time disallow the use of the contactless method for the transaction, and prompt you to insert the card and enter your PIN.  This ensures that the rightful card owner is in possession of the card.

4. Will my current PIN work on my new Interac Flash debit card?

No, we regret that we cannot replace an active Member Card debit card with an Interac Flash-enabled replacement without issuing a new PIN. In advance of receiving your new Interac Flash card via mail, you will receive a separate mailer with a new PIN. If your card is issued at a branch, you can re-PIN your new card right then and there. You can change your PIN at any time by visiting a Tandia branch or at any Tandia ATM or Exchange Network ATM location.

5. Are there fees associated with using Interac Flash?

There are no additional or new fees associated with Interac Flash transactions - the fees remain the same and are dependent on the type of account being debited. Please refer to Interac Direct Payment fees in our Service Fee Bulletin.

6. What are the limits on Interac Flash transactions?

For security purposes, you can “tap” your card to pay for transactions that are $100 or less, and may do multiple transactions in one day, up to a total of $200. After that point, you must re-enter your PIN at a point-of-sale terminal which will then reset your $200 limit allowing for subsequent Interac Flash purchases.

7. Can the limits on Interac Flash Member Card debit cards be customized?

No, the limits are set by Interac® and cannot be altered.

8. Are Interac Flash limits included in the overall point-of-sale daily transaction limits?


9. Can I deactivate Interac Flash on my Member Card debit card?

If you do not wish to have the Interac Flash feature on your new Member Card debit card, you can request that it be disabled at any branch or through the Member Solutions Centre.

10. Can I reactivate the Interac Flash feature later?

Yes, you can reactivate in the future, however there will be a reactivation fee of $15.00 due to the network costs that Tandia incurs to make these changes to your Interac Flash debit card.

11. What happens in the event of a lost/stolen Interac Flash Member Card debit card?

Remember, Interac Flash is backed by Interac’s Zero Liability Policy to protect you from unauthorized use of your card. Don’t panic but please contact us immediately – during regular business hours, you can call us at 1-800-598-2891 and we will talk you through the process from start to finish. After hours, please call our Card Services partner at 1-800-567-8111 or collect 1-306-566-1276.

12. Can I accidentally pay for something if I stand or hold my debit card too close to a terminal?

Two things would have to happen at the same time for a transaction to go through while your card is still in your wallet. First, the point-of-sale terminal would have to be ready to receive a debit transaction. Second, your card would have to get within 4 cm of the terminal. It is good to be aware of where your card is when entering line-ups for purchases, but making a purchase without being aware is virtually impossible.

Alert Notifications questions and answers:

Learn more about Alert Notifications by reviewing these frequently asked questions:

1. What are online banking Alerts?

Alerts allow members to receive notifications about specific banking activities. Alerts are set up and edited in online banking. Currently five types of Alerts are available and we will add to the available Alerts as our technology allows.

2. How does a member receive Alerts?

Alerts can be received by both email and text message.

3. Is there a charge for setting up or using Alerts?

There are no setup charges and there is no charge to members for receiving Alerts by email. However, when members receive text message Alerts, their wireless carrier may charge for receiving text messages. Members are advised to check with their wireless carrier for details.

4. Is any personally identifiable information contained in an Alert message?

Personal or personally identifiable information is not transmitted in the Alert message.

5. Can a member choose to stop receiving Alerts?

Yes, within online banking members can edit and remove Alerts.

6. Are members guaranteed to receive Alerts sent to them?

Alerts cannot be guaranteed to be received because of the potential for an unstable wireless and Internet networks in general. These networks are open to service interruptions and members may move out of service range, which can cause a delay in receiving text messages. Members can check the Alerts sent to them on the 'Alerts History' page in online banking which lists all the Alerts sent within the last 30 days.

A consolidated Online View of your Finances.

Tandia is pleased to offer AccountPlus™ - an online banking feature that provides a consolidated view of your accounts. The AccountPlus feature brings you one step closer to complete financial management.

With AccountPlus, in addition to your credit union accounts you can view other credit union financial partners’ accounts such as registered and non-registered investments. The current partners include NEI Investments, Qtrade Advisor, Qtrade Asset Management Inc. and Qtrade Investor.

  • See all of your accounts and investments in one consolidated view.
  • View your current balance, holdings and transaction details for each account.
  • You're in control - add only the accounts you want to view; remove accounts at any time.
Getting Started

Setting up AccountPlus is easy. All you need is online banking access to your account and current statements for each partner account you would like to link up. Once you have logged into online banking and selected the ‘Member Services’ tab, the ‘Manage AccountPlus’ screen will be accessible. You will be able to link each account in a matter of minutes. To ensure your privacy and security each account has to be linked separately within the ‘Manage AccountPlus’ feature. It’s that easy!

​Linking a Partner Account in Online Banking
Getting started:

Before you begin, you will need your Ethical Funds® client ID, your Qtrade Asset Management client number, and/or your Qtrade Advisor investment number. These numbers can be located on copies of your statements.

Step 1 – Login to online banking:
  • Select the ‘Member Services’ tab at the top of the online banking opening screen.
  • Select ‘Manage AccountPlus’ from the vertical menu on the left sidebar.
Step 2 – Manage AccountPlus:
  • Select the link associated with the Qtrade partner name (as displayed on your statement). You will then be taken to a ‘Link Investment Account’ screen.

Note: Tandia partners with Qtrade to provide many investment services. Because these services are not provided directly by Tandia, you will need to set up the link to your accounts. In order for Tandia be in compliance with our Privacy Code, we cannot do it on your behalf.

Step 3 – Link Investment Account:
  • You are prompted to enter your client ID or Investor number in the field provided. Each ‘Link Investment Account’ screen has a linked image of a sample account statement to help guide you.

Note: you can only add investment accounts that are in your name - you cannot add accounts from other members to your online banking. This is in compliance with our Privacy Code. Also, your last name, postal code and date of birth will default in place. If any defaulted information does not match, you will not be able to link your account until the information is corrected.

An ‘Account Link Successful’ notification should be displayed on screen. Within the next 5 minutes, your Qtrade partner account(s) and investment account details will be linked and viewable back on the Account Summary screen (click on the ‘My Accounts’ tab at the top of the online banking screen and scroll down).

Two-Step Verification (2SV)
What is 2-Step Verification (2SV)?

2-Step Verification is an extra layer of security, designed to make sure that you're the only one who can access your account - even if someone else knows your password.

Why are we implementing it?

For the safety and security of Tandia member accounts, we have increased our requirements for 2-Step Verification (2SV). Members may be prompted for additional information to prove their identity when logging into our online banking system.

How does it work?

When logging into our online banking system through a desktop computer, mobile device or telephone, members will be required to provide not only their login credentials and password but also a verification code that will be sent to them by email, text message or voice call back option according to their preferences.

Do members always have to sign in using 2SV?

Members will not be required to sign in using 2SV on all logins. They will however be prompted with 2SV when:

  • Adding a new bill payee
  • Adding or editing an Interac® e-transfer recipient
  • Changing a Personal Access Code (PAC)
  • Logging in from a new or unrecognized device

With this new security feature in place, we will be lowering the threshold for 2SV when logging in so members will not be required to input the 2SV on all logins.

Mobile devices where facial recognition has been setup and authenticated will not require a member to login with 2SV.

Is it possible to disable 2SV?

No. Tandia is committed to protecting the safety and security of its members. When 2SV is set up, even if someone were to have a member’s username and password, they won’t be able to access their account without this additional security feature that requires a second step to confirm one’s identity.

How do members update or change the details for the verification code delivery method?

Members can update a delivery method (email, text message or voice call back option) by accessing their preferences in online banking and changing their 2-Step Verification information.

What if an account is joint?

Joint account holders can update their personal preferences where one method of delivery can be used by one account holder and the other by the joint account holder. Ie. Joint member 1 can use a mobile device #, joint member 2 can use an email. Joint account holders cannot use the same delivery method.

Will anyone from Tandia ever call a member to request a verification code?

Tandia will never call you to ask for your verification code, your PAC, your PIN codes or any other private banking information. Members should never give their personal or financial information to people they don’t know – this includes never sharing their verifications codes, passwords, PAC's or PINs

What if a member can’t login to online banking?

Members who are unable to sign-in to online banking can contact our Members Solutions Centre at 1-800-598-2891

Tandia uses a number of techniques to protect your security...

Our online banking system is safeguarded with the best security available in a commercial environment, ensuring that your information is protected while data is transmitted between your computer and our banking server.


Internet encryption protects your information while it is in transit between your computer and our systems. Encryption ensures that data cannot be read or altered because the information is scrambled. Our online banking website uses a 128-bit SSL, encrypting both request and response transactions, through a secure connection. To establish a secure connection, verify that the prefix of our website address in your browser reads 'https' (and not simply 'http'). All the browsers we support meet this requirement. If yours doesn't, please download the appropriate encryption support from your browser's supplier.

Controlled Access to Your Accounts

Your accounts can only be accessed by providing the correct login credentials and Personal Access Code (PAC), which only you know. Our employees never know these details and will never ask you to provide them with this information.

Enhanced Security Login Process

The first time you log in to your online banking account, you will be asked to choose from a list of security questions and answers. Be sure to pick questions with answers that are not easy to guess. Use ones that only you know. If you have a joint account, the questions and answers for both users must coincide. You can register your home or personal computer so that you will not have to answer a security question every time you log in. However, when you log in to your account from another machine, we will ask one of the security questions to confirm your identity.

For security reasons, we track the number of login attempts used to access your online banking. After a number of incorrect attempts to provide the correct PAC or answers to security questions, your online access will be immediately disabled. To regain access, please call our customer service representatives.

Feel safe and secure...

When visiting a branch, you can feel confident that your money is safe and secure, with the premises adorned by vaults, locked doors, security and surveillance. We are keeping you just as safe when you bank online but once your information reaches your computer, you have a responsibility to protect it.

Personal Access Codes (PAC)

Online credentials can be numerous as they are needed for email accounts, social networking sites, online newspapers and shopping websites. That's a lot of usernames and passwords – and it can be tempting to use the same combination for everything. But this makes it far too easy for hackers because once they have one password, they can access all your sites. Login credentials are the keys to your accounts so don't leave those keys around for anyone to find. For online banking, the key is your Personal Access Code (PAC). We recommend you:

  • Choose a PAC that is easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess. Avoid using current phone numbers, dates of birth, or social insurance numbers.
  • Be smart and don't save a list of your credentials on your PC. If you have to write them down, keep these details locked away somewhere only you can access or consider using password-management software, which secures and encrypts usernames and passwords and allows you to use a single master password.
  • Do not share your PAC with anyone, especially online. Employees of our financial institution will never call, email, write or ask you to provide your online banking credentials. Ever.
  • Don't authorize browsers to memorize your credentials. Saving these on your computer allows anyone using your PC to gain access to your login-protected sites.
  • Consider changing your PAC every 90 days for optimum security.
Personal Details

When you move, it is important to notify us of your change of address. If your mailing information isn't up-to-date, statements or letters that contain personal information will continue to be sent to your former address.


You may prefer to eliminate paper statements altogether, avoiding any possibility of mail theft. Eliminate paper documents, go electronic and be secure while doing it. Our e-Statements are a digital archive of your monthly banking activity than can be downloaded as a PDF from our secure online banking site.


Our e-Documents allow you quick and convenient online access to your financial documents: anytime, anywhere. Open the documents as PDFs and print your T5s, mortgage receipts or transaction receipts only as needed, while creating a safe and secure digital archive.

Logging In and Out

When you are finished with your banking session, always log out by clicking the "Log Out" button, as opposed to simply closing the browser window. To help protect your information, your online banking session will end automatically if there has been no activity for 20 minutes or if your visit lasts longer than 60 minutes. If your session has timed out, no further transactions can be made until you log in again. This time-out feature helps protect your accounts from unauthorized access if your PC is left unattended or if you have forgotten to log out.

Clearing Cookies and Cache

When you spend time on the Internet, your browser stores information, such as the websites you visit, the images and files you view, and your personal information, including passwords and login details. This data is held on your computer's hard drive and is known as 'cache.' Even though you may have logged out and closed your browser, this information may remain accessible. You can protect your data by clearing your browsing history regularly. This can be done in a few easy steps:

Internet Explorer Users

Click on the 'Tools' tab (or use the 'Ctrl-Shift-Delete' shortcut)

  1. Select 'Delete Browsing History'
  2. Choose the options you wish to erase and click 'Delete'
Firefox Users

Click on the 'History' tab (or use the 'Ctrl-Shift-Delete' shortcut)

  1. Select 'Show All History' and/or
  2. Choose the time frame you wish to erase and click 'Delete'
Safari Users

Click on the 'History' tab

  1. Select 'Show all History'
  2. Choose the period you wish to erase and click 'Clear History'
Chrome Users

Delete all your data:

  1. In the top-right corner of Chrome, click the Chrome menu.
  2. Select More tools > Clear browsing data. In the dialog that appears, select the checkboxes for the types of information that you want to remove.
  3. Use the menu at the top to select the amount of data that you want to delete. Select beginning of time to delete everything.
  4. Click Clear browsing data.

Delete specific items from your browsing data:

Instead of deleting entire categories of your browsing data, you can pick specific items to delete.

Private Browsing

Some web browsers have a feature that allows you to browse the Internet without the browser storing information, such as the sites you visit, the images you see and videos you watch. This feature is sometimes used by people who share the same computer. Private browsing is a temporary option and must be selected in order for it to be activated. Private browsing, however, does not give you immunity to spyware or make you anonymous. It is still possible for your Internet service provider, employer or the websites you visit to track your online activity.

Monitoring Your Accounts

Frequently reviewing your paper and/or electronic account statements and/or registering for our transaction alert system ensures that you spot any incorrect or fraudulent transactions as soon as they occur. If your card has been skimmed (when the card's magnetic stripe and PIN are fraudulently copied by embedded devices at ATMs or point-of-sale devices) or unauthorized transactions have been made, you will want to catch this as soon as possible. Every time you receive an account statement, verify you made all the transactions or let us notify you whenever there has been movement in your accounts (with the transaction alert system).

Transaction Alert System

With this feature, you select what types of account activity you want to be notified about, and we'll alert you through text message or email. These alerts allow you to monitor your accounts effortlessly and detect suspicious activity immediately.

While our alert messages provide balances and account activity, they will never ask for, or contain, your personal details, account numbers, login credentials or any other type of confidential information. Also, our notifications will never include any links or instructions to click or download anything.

epost ™

Receive, manage and pay your bills through Canada Post's free online service. To sign up, create an account and scroll through the list of partners to find which bills you can receive with epost. More than 100 organizations are supported as "Mailers," including telecommunications and credit card companies and government agencies. You can also store your bills and statements securely on epost for up to seven years.

Anyone can become a victim of fraud. Contact Tandia immediately to report if you believe that you are a victim of fraud. Additionally, notify any other financial institutions and/or credit card companies that may be at risk.

Call our Member Solutions Centre at 1-800-598-2891.

Reporting fraud is crucial for several reasons. First and foremost, it helps protect victims and prevent further financial losses. By reporting the fraud, victims can work with Tandia and law enforcement agencies to recover stolen funds and prevent the fraudster from victimizing others.
