Become a Member
It’s quick and easy to become a member of Encompass Credit Union! All you need to do is open your first account with us, either online or by visiting your local branch. After that, you’ll have access to our full range of financial products and services and exclusive member benefits you won’t find at the big banks. Credit Unions offer everything you can find at any financial institutions, but better!
Encompass Credit Union is a member-owned financial institution where members vote for the board of directors and enjoy the benefits of profit sharing. To become a member, each individual must purchase common shares which then allows them to share in the profits.
Community MindedEncompass Credit Union, like all credit unions, is committed to the communities they serve. Credit unions provide more in community sponsorship and donations than the big banks in local communities.
Each year, we return a large portion of our profit to the Alberta communities we serve:
- We return profit share to our members through dividends.
- We enrich our communities through scholarships, grants, donations and sponsorships in the communities we serve. Currently, three $1,000 scholarships are awarded to our members who are enrolled in post-secondary education.
- Community Social Responsibility Investment Program grants of up to $10,000 each are awarded in February of each year.
