A small group of neighbours came together to create the first financial institution on the lower Sunshine Coast, Roberts Creek Credit Union. They met in their homes before opening a Sechelt office.
The credit union’s name changes to Sunshine Coast Credit Union, to reflect its service to the entire Coast.
Sunshine Coast Credit Union merges with Port Mellon Industries Credit Union.
A third branch emerged with the addition of Pender Harbour Credit Union.
Celebrating 80 years of working together with you, to enrich lives in our local communities.
Seventy-eight years ago, a handful of Sunshine Coast locals came together to talk about forming a credit union. Isolated, and without much money to change hands, they felt the need to help one another. In 1941, Roberts Creek Credit Union was born.
Today, Sunshine Coast Credit Union is a full-service financial institution delivering personal and commercial banking services to more than 17,000 members. In addition to in-person service delivered through our three branches, we connect with members through a variety of channels including phone, online banking, live chat, mobile banking and mobile advisors.
While our name may have changed, our values have remained steadfast. Like our founders, we know we can achieve more together than each of us ever could individually. For this reason, we remain dedicated to seeking out and pursuing synergies that will ultimately create value for our member-owners. This can take many forms, such as collaborating with other credit unions or like-minded organizations, co-operating as a team, or joining forces with community stakeholders.
Our success is defined by our members’ success. We’re honoured to be part of their lives as a trusted partner to achieving their goals and dreams.
