About Us




Sudbury Credit Union’s humble beginnings started in Copper Cliff on September 13th, 1951, from the vision of 24 community minded individuals who believed the people living in their neighbourhood deserved a financial institution that wasn’t all about dollars and cents. Copper Cliff Community Credit Union started with one simple value, “people helping people.” This value has remained true throughout our history and resonates today as much as it did in 1951.

As a community minded financial co-operative, Sudbury Credit Union is committed to the well-being of our employees, our members and our community. It is still about people helping people, but now it extends from Levack to Minnow Lake, from the branch to the smartphone, from the small local community group to the large national charitable foundation and from the home business to the local limited company.

We no longer keep our deposits in a shoebox under the bed of our first Treasurer, J.T. “Jack” Gallagher and conduct business in his kitchen. Today we serve over 16,500 Sudburians with 75 employees, 7 branches, 9 ATMs and 1 rapidly growing virtual branch. Even with all these changes we still believe that banking is not all about dollars and cents. It is about the stories and experiences of all of us. Each of us is different but we are united by where we live and working together we can do great things.

We not only give back with more than 5% of our pre-tax dollars in the form of corporate sponsorships and donations to local organizations and charities, but we also volunteer as much as we can with those groups.

We are truly a Community Minded financial co-operative and proud to be a strong partner in the City of Greater Sudbury.

Seven Co-operative Principles

Voluntary and Open Membership

Co-operatives are voluntary organizations, open to all people able to use its services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political or religious discrimination.

Democratic Member Control

Co-operatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members - those who buy the goods or use the services of the co-operative - who actively participate in setting policies and making decisions.

Member Economic Participation

Members contribute equally to, and democratically control, the capital of the co-operative. This benefits members in proportion to the business they conduct with the co-operative rather than on the capital invested.

Autonomy and Independence

Co-operatives are autonomous, self-help organizations controlled by their members. If the co-op enters into agreements with other organizations or raises capital from external sources, it is done so based on terms that ensure democratic control by the members and maintains the co-operative’s autonomy.

Education, Training and Information

Co-operatives provide education and training for members, elected representatives, managers and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their co-operative. Members also inform the general public about the nature and benefits of co-operatives.

Co-operation Among Co-operatives

Co-operatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the co-operative movement by working together through local, national, regional and international structures.

Concern for Community

While focusing on member needs, co-operatives work for the sustainable development of communities through policies and programs accepted by the members.
