Welcome to a banking experience that is as unique as you!
We believe in providing better service, exceptional rates and a cooperative business model that puts our members first, not just profits. At Tandia, you’ll be treated as an individual, not a number – you're our friend and neighbour from down the street.
A fundamental operating principle of all Credit Unions is democratic ownership and it clearly sets us apart from other financial institutions. When you open an account at Tandia for personal, business or organization purposes, you are asked to make a one-time $25 Member Shares deposit to formally acquire your membership rights and privileges.
Your Member Shares entitle you to use all of the services of the Credit Union and have a vote on major issues placed before the Membership including the election of our Board of Directors. Member Shares are not a fee; they represent your share of democratic ownership in Tandia. Should you ever decide to leave, your Member Shares would be returned to you.
Member Shares are always listed as the first account in your regular statements and in your Account Summary in online and mobile banking. Every member will have Member Shares held in their own Member Shares account; even in the case of joint memberships, each member will have their own designated Member Shares account.

The Member Shares requirement for members under the age of 18 is $5.00.

Am I unique? We are here to tell you that yes you are and so are your finances! You may or may not have noticed a lot of our branding uses a fingerprint image. Well, that’s because we know how unique you truly are, and we want to make sure we treat your finances the same way.
Each person’s fingerprints are unique and at Tandia we realize your financial picture is as well. We want to celebrate your uniqueness and ensure we find the perfect fit of products and services that work for you.
At Tandia, we believe that financial institutions should be accountable to the people they serve. We believe that there’s more than one way to measure success. We believe that our profits should have a positive financial, social and environmental impact on communities.
We understand that everyone is different, and we work hard to tailor solutions that are right for you.
