  • About

Kawartha Credit Union serves over 50,000 members with online and mobile banking access, and a network of 22 branches that extend from Cornwall to Parry Sound. With more than 70 years of history and a focus on service excellence, Kawartha delivers a full suite of competitive financial products and needs-based advice. We also provide access to thousands of Exchange® Network surcharge-free ATMs in North America. Membership at Kawartha is open to anyone looking for a local financial services provider.

Since 1998, Kawartha has supported the well-being of the communities we serve through our Community Involvement Program which has donated over $3 million in corporate donations. In addition, our dedicated employees volunteer their time and talents to many initiatives throughout the year.

We call our customers “members” because you purchase a share in our credit union when you join us. This share means that you have a say in the way our credit union is operated. You can exercise your democratic rights by voting in our Board of Directors election.


We provide “banking in your best interest” and we invite you to experience our difference.
