The Alterna Difference

Like you, we belong to the community.

We get it - it’s something you hear all the time.  But at Alterna Savings, we really are different.

As a co-operative financial institution, our commitment to the communities we serve is part of our foundation—after all, we’ve lived and worked here for over 100 years.

Did you know Alterna Savings is an Imagine Canada Caring Company?

This means that, as an Imagine Canada Caring Company, Alterna Savings exceeds the required 1% of our pre-tax profits to the communities we serve. In fact, we make an annual commitment to contribute a minimum of 2%! Half is provided by our Community Grants Program, and the other half, often more than one percent, is contributed through community partnerships and sponsorships, awards, our Micro-Finance Program and other activities.

At Alterna Savings, going above and beyond for our local communities is always among our top priorities.

Now, that’s different.
