Alterna Savings welcomes 15 new branches across Ontario

TORONTO, ON – (July 4, 2023) –Alterna Savings is thrilled to open the doors to 15 new branch locations for all its members. This follows the successful integration of Quinte First and PACE Credit Unions with Alterna Savings.

"We are thrilled to welcome members from Quinte First and PACE Credit Unions to Alterna Savings" says Rob Paterson, President and CEO of Alterna Savings. "Our long history of successful integrations demonstrates the depth of experience of the team at Alterna, and our ongoing commitment to our members. We look forward to welcoming another merger partner, Member Savings Credit Union, to our network and services later this year."

The impact of this change on former Quinte First and PACE members is overwhelmingly positive with members gaining access to the full suite of Alterna Savings products and services, a bilingual Contact Centre open seven days a week, a new state-of-the-art mobile and online banking experience and industry-leading online brokerage and investment services with Alterna Wealth.
