On behalf of the credit unions’ Boards of Directors and Executive teams, we are pleased to announce that we’ve achieved a positive merger vote between Access, Noventis, and Sunova Credit Unions!

On Thursday, January 27, each credit union hosted a Special Meeting of Members to finalize voting and announce the results. At these meetings, we achieved a two-thirds majority vote in favor of amalgamating Access, Noventis, and Sunova Credit Unions.

A two-thirds majority vote was needed, and we are pleased to share that the resolution was passed with the following results:

In favourOpposed

Effective July 1, 2022, we will become the NEW Access Credit Union. We will be a credit union that continues to focus on our members first. One that is future-focused, innovative, and strong; not only in our financials, but in our values, our people, and our communities.

Thank you to the members who participated in this important vote!

More information will be shared as we prepare to bring our three credit unions together. We are committed to keeping the lines of communication open and keeping our members informed and engaged through the next phase of this process.
