Our Commitment to Credit Unions

Canada has a vibrant and thriving network of credit unions; one that is making steady gains by creating collaborative partnerships, staying true to the cooperative principles and living their vision of being an integral part of their communities. To stay competitive and profitable, today’s most successful credit unions must respond to external forces (such as changing relations, consolidation and member needs) and internal forces (such as staffing, operational effectiveness and changing technology), while balancing the credit union system forces in play.

We proudly work with more than 135 credit unions across Canada – more than any other professional services firm in the country. Like you, we are committed to the communities where we live and work. We aim to strengthen credit union leadership, knowledge and financial position by providing technical, business and financial advice with a local perspective, while also helping you understand your place in a dynamic national landscape. We offer a custom suite of services specifically designed to help credit address your most pressing concerns, from board governance to technology solutions to regulatory compliance.

Our Tailored Services for Credit Unions

External Audit and Financial Statements

We understand the rigorous compliance requirements Canada’s credit unions face and offer peace-of-mind through external audit, assurance, technical guidance and financial reporting. Working together, we maximize value through communication and an experienced team that truly understands not just financial services, but credit unions.

Consulting

You need to focus on responding to member needs, considering changes to your strategy, people, process or technology. We help guide you through these areas, driving continuous improvement through all aspects of your credit union and creating the culture and governance necessary to thrive in this time of change.

Tax

As we have seen in recent years, tax legislation can change when you least expect it. As you adapt to the removal of the additional deduction for credit unions, look for guidance on FATCA requirements and maximize your Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) claims, MNP provides the support you need. We keep you up-to-date on new tax developments and identify opportunities to minimize your tax exposure.

Enterprise Risk and Internal Audit

These areas are top of mind for credit unions and regulators alike, to ensure you are ready for the next challenge. Whether seeking a federal charter or positioning yourself for inevitable provincial regulatory changes we help you effectively manage your priority risks, including assistance with enterprise risk management, internal audit, technology risk (cyber security) and business continuity.

Regulatory and Compliance

Credit unions carry a significant compliance burden when it comes to anti-money laundering and financial reporting compliance. We help you meet your obligations and safeguard your assets.
