As Nelson & District Credit Union (NDCU) prepares for its 70th Annual General Meeting, planned as a virtual online event, the Credit Union released financial results for 2020.

The past year’s high points were growth in assets, members’ deposits and comprehensive income, while also distributing close to $110,000 to community organizations within its service area.


  • Assets increased by over 17 per cent to $281 million
  • Members’ deposits increased by 18 per cent to $261 million
  • Community Investment since 2000 exceeds $3.76 million

Why are these highlights significant?

  • Investing in our Credit Union promotes vitality: every dollar that remains in our community has a multiplier effect.
  • When members borrow and invest with us, we can continue to actively help the local economy by cycling money back into the community through mortgages, loans and community giving.
  • Our pledge, “Embrace Local” ensures a vibrant and resilient community-based financial institution is part of the fabric of each community we serve.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, we want to assure you that the health and safety of our members and employees is a top priority so that we can continue to serve you. The decision has been made to host the 70th Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 7 p.m., utilizing the online meeting service, Zoom.
