Doug MacMillan - Your Credit UnionCornwall OntarioYour Credit Union has opened a new branch in Cornwall’s East End, in an effort to meet the demands of a growing client base.

“We have been considering a second branch for quite some time, and given that the majority of city residents live in the East, we knew which direction to head,” says Doug MacMillan, Director of Retail Services at Your Credit Union.

The new branch is located in the Glengarry Square commercial plaza on Second Street, adjacent to the LCBO.

The new branch is open Monday to Wednesday from 9am to 4pm and Thursday and Friday from 9am to 6:30pm.

“We invite the community to come and join us for our grand opening on April 12 from 4pm to 6pm,” says Mr. MacMillan.

The new location follows the opening of a kiosk office at the Cornwall Community Hospital in September 2015.

These expansions have helped the company add 3 full time positions in Cornwall.

“It has been a very positive year for us,” notes Mr. MacMillan. “As Cornwall grows, Your Credit Union will be there to support local individuals, families and companies.

In 2012, Your Credit Union completed a $1-million facelift to its Downtown Cornwall headquarters at 321 Second Street West.

Your Credit Union has been a fixture in Cornwall for 57 years, originally starting out as the Howard Smith Credit Union serving employees of the former Domtar paper mill. Since that time, the credit unions for employees of the City of Cornwall and the two former hospitals in the City have joined Your Credit Union.

Today, Your Credit Union offers a variety of financial products and services for members residing throughout Cornwall, Ottawa and Eastern Ontario.
