ACTRA Members speak up about credit union membership

“I promise, the more you discover, the more you'll like it. And when it comes to Creative Arts Savings & Credit Union, the stronger we’ll be, the better we’ll get. Our strength is in our numbers.” [Peter Keleghan]

Award-winning actor Peter Keleghan is renowned for his commitment to Canadian culture as much as his storied career in stage, television and feature films. “That’s why I’m so devoted to this credit union – it’s a true legacy we’re building for the benefit of future generations.

“What we went through as performers, and industry professionals behind the camera, shouldn’t have to happen again. When the bank heard you were a self-employed actor, the conversation ended before it began. I don’t want the next generation of performers to have to suffer through the same experiences we did.

“Creative Arts is our financial institution, designed by us and attuned to our unique needs. Sure, it’s a fledgling institution right now. But it will be much bigger in the future, when more of you come on board to do your banking here, like I have.

“We’re in this for the long term. For example, just look at the great work the credit union has been doing in the community with projects like Artscape – financing mortgages for condo and studio space to assist qualifying low income artists.

“This home-grown banking institution is really a stewardship of necessity for those of us who are more established. Keep in mind, 25 or 30 years ago ACTRA didn’t have an insurance plan. And we didn’t have a strong union. Those building blocks are in place now. Creative Arts is merely the newest one. It gives us yet another lever to control our financial futures.

“The banks in this country aren’t any better than they have to be. Creative Arts is. I urge you to give us a try by becoming a member, opening an account, and experiencing first-hand how good it feels to have the respect of your banker.”
