Quinte First and Alterna Savings Merger News

Quinte First Credit Union (Quinte First) and Alterna Savings and Credit Union Limited (Alterna Savings) are pleased to announce that our merger was finalized on May 31st, 2020.

Quinte First is now officially Alterna Savings and Credit Union Limited.
This change follows a Quinte First member vote, which was held virtually between March 30th to April 3rd. Members overwhelmingly chose to join Alterna Savings. We’re thrilled to begin this new chapter for our credit union!

What’s changing?

Quinte First is now officially Alterna Savings. Over time you will begin to see greater use of the Alterna Savings logo (pictured below).

What’s staying the same?
You’ll continue to bank at your Quinte First branch with the same familiar faces you’ve come to know and trust.

There are no changes to your products and services at this time. Also, your debit card, cheques, auto deposits and payments, and all the ways you bank will continue as usual for the time being.

We’re excited about the future!
