Personal Loans

We can provide personal loans for most consumer needs. Whether it be a new car, a family vacation, debt consolidation and an investment, we can design a loan and repayment program to meet your requirements.

The maximum personal loan of $250,000 with up to 5 years to repay meets the needs of most members. For larger loans see the section on Home Equity Lines of Credit. Repayments can be tailored to your needs whether it be weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.
By timing your payments to match your payroll or direct deposit cycle you can minimize your interest costs. Additional payments can be made against a loan at anytime in order to retire the debt more quickly.

Loans are set as variable rates unless otherwise specified. Life insurance and credit disability insurance help insure worry free borrowing in the event of a mishap.

A loan manager at each of our branches is available to assist you in your needs.

Line of Credit

A Line of Credit Loan is a convenient loan you can use any time you need extra money. Available from $200 to $10,000 it serves as a revolving credit that you can draw on at your convenience without having to reapply each time. Many people use it for temporary overdraft protection on their Personal Chequing Account or to finance more significant purchases instead of putting the purchase on a credit card..

Interest is calculated daily on only the outstanding balance. Monthly repayments are set at 3% of outstanding month end balances. Transactions are listed on the monthly statements that are sent to members. One application will set up a Line of Credit that you can use for years.

RRSP Loans at Prime
