Our Mission

"It is the goal of the Ontario Educational Credit Union to be
the primary provider of financial services for our Members."

Privacy Policy

Effective January 1, 2004 Ontario Educational Credit Union will be subject to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPED Act). To comply with the act your credit union has adopted the Credit Union Code of Protection of Personal Information (the Code). 

What is Personal Information? OECU obtains information from you directly, when you obtain a product from the credit union and, with your permission, from credit bureaus, other financial institutions and references. This information can include your name, address, age, income, use of accounts and credit history and the relationship of others linked to you in account services.

What does this mean to you? OECU has always maintained a high level of confidentiality. We collect only the information required to provide you with the products and services you request; to meet legal and regulatory requirements and for analytical purposes that assist the credit union in managing our activities.

How we presently share information. OECU provides information to third parties only when required for you to purchase the service or product offered by the third party; for legal requirements such as T5s; and for the purpose of conducting audits or verifications of information. OECU does not sell, lease or disclose any lists of information, personal or otherwise, to any party for any reason except our auditor and regulatory bodies when required.

What are your rights? Members have the right to see what information OECU holds, to correct information and the right to change the way OECU uses the information. However, changing the way OECU uses your information will limit the services that OECU can provide to you. OECU has appointed a Privacy Officer to ensure compliance with the Code and the regulations.

If you have any comments, inquiries or complaints about the handling of personal information we encourage you to contact the Privacy Officer at 905-795-1637 or by email to mail@oecu.on.ca with the subject of Privacy Issue.
