As Unique As You

​Welcome to better service, exceptional rates, and a cooperative business model that recognizes that it’s about people, not just profits.

​Tandia Financial Credit Union

At Tandia, you’re not a number, you’re an individual and you’re our neighbour from down the street. You’re unique, and that matters to us. ​At Tandia, you’re not just our customer, you’re a member and an owner. That means you can be confident that your unique needs come first. We understand that everyone is different, and we tailor solutions that are just right for you.
 
We’re different too.

We believe that financial institutions should be more accountable to the people they serve; we believe that there’s more than one way to measure success; and we believe that our profits should have a positive financial, social and environmental impact on the communities in which we live and work. Actions speak louder than words and we work hard to demonstrate our commitment each and every day.

Credit union day

Credit Union Day around the world

International Credit Union Day, coordinated by the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. It was established to acknowledge the credit union model, history and commitment to communities locally, nationally and internationally.

A little history lesson

While our name may be relatively new, our Credit Union has a rich past. In 2014, two credit unions, each with a long history and deep roots in the community, joined together to become Tandia Financial Credit Union. It all started with Hamilton-based Teachers Credit Union, established in 1940 which strived to offer a more positive financial experience for educational employees and their families than what was offered by the banks. Prosperity ONE was formed just a few years later in 1957 to serve the Halton community. It, too, was born of the same vision - to deliver a better and more inclusive banking experience.             

In 2017, Toronto-based MemberOne Credit Union and its bond with WSIB employees throughout Ontario merged with Tandia and we gained a branch location for all members in downtown Toronto.

From a rich past to a bright future

Today, we are proud that the spirit of our original Credit Unions and their founding members lives on in Tandia. We continue to seek ways to grow our Credit Union and improve the financial health of the people and communities we serve. From our grass-roots Member Referral Rewards Program, to our advertising and business development initiatives and involvement in our communities, we seek to continually grow our membership strategically throughout Ontario.
