Fire Services Credit Union is a full-service credit union that is dedicated to the financial well being of fire services employees and their families. We are regulated by the province of Ontario, all deposits are insured (just like the banks) and we offer a full suite of products and services, in branch and online, by telephone and at ATM’s across Canada. Just like the banks—only without all that institutional stuff.
Membership in the Fire Services Credit Union is open to both active and retired employees of fire departments in Ontario, as well as civic employees of the former borough of East York, and the extended family members of both these groups. Spouses, children, parents, and siblings can all take advantage of everything we have to offer!
It all began in 1941. With the world at war, the founding members of our Credit Union were intent on building a strong financial future for Fire Fighters and their families. Our first offices were located in fire halls, wherever there was available space. There were initially 21 members, and assets totalled $3,278. The first mortgages were approved in 1948 and the terms were simple. The amount could not exceed $3,500, taking into consideration that department salaries that year started at $2,191 and climbed up to the $7,000 earned by the Chief.
In 1993 we purchased our Avenue Road site and our growth continued. Today we have about 4,500 members and assets totalling approximately $68,000,000. The years from 2005 to 2010 brought a number of challenges, including changes to regulatory standards, an economic recession, increasing competition, and rapid technological advancements. In 2010 we changed our name to Fire Services Credit Union and adopted a new logo, reflecting our nature as a modern credit union embracing new ways of serving a new generation of Fire Services employees.
Much has changed since 1941, but our commitment remains the same: to build strong financial futures for our members.
