When you learn about how DUCA Credit Union started and what we stand for, you’ll understand why we created the DUCA Impact Lab.
DUCA is a vibrant credit union that was started in 1954 by a group of new Canadians who didn’t have access to the mainstream banking system. As immigrants, they didn’t fit the conventional wisdom of the time of what a good banking customer looked like. So they established a financial co-operative that would work on behalf of its Members.
That was the start of our “profits with a purpose” philosophy, and it has continued to be our touchstone as we have grown from a single branch in Toronto to many branches across Southern Ontario, with more than 60,000 Members and a strong online presence. It is evident in every financial transaction, product, interest rate and community initiative we offer, and in our dedication to helping our Members “do more, be more, achieve more” with their money and their lives.
