Get Your Slice of the Pie

You won’t see many banks sharing their profits with their customers. Happily, we’re not a bank. At Bow Valley Credit Union, you are our member, and that’s special .

When you open your Bow Valley Credit Union account, you become one of our members by purchasing Common Shares. When we make a profit, you get a piece of it as a common share dividend payment, based on the amount of common shares you hold. It's what we know is right. The more common shares you hold the more you stand to get back in your pocket. We call it getting Your Slice of the Pie, and it’s what set us apart from other financial institutions.

We promise, there’s no catch, just cash back. A lot to take in? When you compare that shareholders own banks while every member of our Credit Union is an owner, it changes the picture. Let's focus on the banking with strength where you get common share dividend payments for being our member.
