financial backup for life


OPPA Credit Union was started by officers like you in 1971. Since then, we’ve focused solely on helping OPP officers, staff and their families achieve financial security. We’ve done it well according to our members – we’ve got to know thousands of people just like you over the years, and that experience is invaluable when it comes to helping you secure a bright financial future today.

A lot has changed since we began. There are banks on every corner and you don’t need to be in one to do your banking. What your pension will cover in your retirement years has changed, how you save and borrow has changed, how you and your family members build security for the future has changed.

OPPA Credit Union has done better than keep up with change and we still answer our phones when you call (imagine how easy that makes everything!). Our products, services and financial planning/investment advice are second to none. How you access your money and move it into and out of your accounts with us is super easy and convenient no matter where you live.

What hasn’t changed is simply this: We’ve always got your back. Because we understand your lifestyle and challenges, we can fit financial services and ideas to you better than anyone else. We do it without bias, sales agendas and commissions on that advice. What’s good for you is best for us too.

That’s financial backup for life. That’s what we offer over 8,000 members with over $225 million in assets. That’s what you get here that you’ll not find anywhere else. And we think that’s what you need to know About Us to get started.
