Credit unions come together for B.C. flood support

November 20, 2021

A group of credit unions in Ontario has come together quickly to support efforts to recover from devastating floods in British Columbia.

Libro Credit Union kicked off a response from eight credit unions, leading to a combined donation of $65,000 to the British Columbia Floods and Extreme Weather Appeal, launched by the Canadian Red Cross.


The credit unions joining the effort are:

  • Libro Credit Union
  • DUCA Credit Union
  • FirstOntario Credit Union
  • Kindred Credit Union
  • Meridian Credit Union
  • YNCU
  • Northern Credit Union
  • Kawartha Credit Union


Libro CEO and Head Coach Steve Bolton said: “Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the flooding, and the first instinct of everyone involved in a credit union is a desire to help, even in a small way.

“Thank you to all the Ontario credit unions stepping up to the plate for this: it’s a great example of the cooperation that’s second-nature to people involved in cooperative banking.”

There is still time for more credit unions, and of course other organizations and individuals, to contribute to the appeal directly.
