Budget 2015: the “My Credit Union Matters” message is getting heard
Thousands of Canadians urged Finance Minister Joe Oliver to work with credit unions. Over 6,900 emails sent. Hundreds of Tweets. Hundreds of post cards and signed petitions. All to remind Ottawa that credit unions matter for jobs, banking innovation and strong communities.
Because of you, the 2015 budget recognized the importance of credit unions. This is an important step to build a stronger understanding between credit unions and the federal government.
Together we’ve demonstrated the importance and strength of credit unions. We’ll continue to promote the Capital Growth Tax Credit and other appropriate measures to help credit unions grow the economy.
We’re not done yet. Together, we’ll keep letting Ottawa know “My Credit Union Matters!”
