Member Share

Our Membership Share

The fundamental operating principle of Kawartha Credit Union is democratic ownership. When you open an account, you make a one-time investment of $25 ($5 for members under 18 years of age) in membership shares. That’s five membership shares and one vote in the decision making process. All members are equal owners, regardless of their deposits. Your shares entitle you to seek election to the Board of Directors and have a say in the business. If you have a question or concern, talk to someone at a branch near you.
