Our governance structure’s one of the things that makes Affinity different.
It’s effective, transparent, accountable, open and ethical. It keeps us connected to our co-operative roots, and to each of our diverse members.
Our members are grouped into 9 districts, and 8 of those districts represent Affinity members from a specific region in the province.
Our Indigenous District’s unique. It represents First Nations communities specifically, and it serves the whole province instead of a single region. It was created to improve access to financial services, and support indigenous individuals, families, businesses and their economic growth.
Our districts all have a district council, which is elected by our members. Each district council elects one or more directors to the Board of Directors depending on the number of members within their district.
That special something that makes credit unions unique. Nothing’s more important than our members, and our democratic process keeps you front and centre.
The men and women who sit on our Board of Directors are the decision makers behind Affinity, helping determine where we’re headed.
These are your elected representatives – the people that Affinity members from each of our districts elect to represent their interests. These folks elect the Board, distribute district council funding and provide feedback as member-owners.
