Our History

Photo of the six Canadian General Electric employees who founded the Kawartha Credit Union in 1952.
Kawartha Credit Union (formerly CANGECO credit union) was started in 1952 by employees of the Maintenance and Repair Department of Canadian General Electric in Peterborough. They rented a small office in the CGE plant and focussed on providing loans to employees of GE and their families. From its humble beginnings, Kawartha Credit Union has grown to 23 branches across Ontario with over $1.5 Billion in assets. To view a timeline of our history, click here.
