Canadian Anti-Spam Law (CASL)

The Canadian Anti-Spam Law (CASL) went into effect July 1, 2014. It is in place to protect Canadians while ensuring that businesses can continue to compete in the global marketplace. On July 1, 2017 the third phase of CASL comes into effect. From time to time Energy CU staff may contact our members via email or other electronic means in order to serve them more efficiently. If at any time you would prefer not to receive electronic messages from The Energy Credit Union Limited, please contact us by email or phone 416-238-5606.

Black Friday the Energy CU way!

Black Friday the Energy CU way can be a little different than what you expect. When many people are scrambling for Black Friday Deals, you may want to reconsider what a great deal really is. If that $1200 Big screen TV is 40% off, you didn’t save $480…. You spent $720. There is a big difference!

Why not take some time this Back Friday to do what you can to make sure that your family’s finances stay in the black? Our staff can help you set a path that fits you and your needs. Maybe you need to consolidate those high interest Credit Cards. Perhaps there is a big purchase on your horizon and you’d like to start tucking some cash away each payday. For those of you who are able to do this small step this year, maybe you can take advantage of next year’s Black Friday sales and pay in cash! Get that RRSP line of credit so you can start taking advantage of those tax shelters that you have been missing out on. Call our offices today at 416-238-5606 and we can get you on the path to your own personal Black Friday!

Are you travelling with your MemberCard outside of Canada?

If you’re planning on taking a trip outside of Canada, please contact us at 416-238-5606 prior to leaving. Our ongoing monitoring programs have identified increased levels of fraud in certain countries recently. As a result, debit card transactions may not be processed in those countries effective 1 November 2016. If you are a frequent traveler to the US, you can sign a Bond of Indemnity which would allow you to have full access of your card without having to notify us each time, for the states you specify. Some conditions apply. For more information please contact us at 416-238-5606.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but the security of our Members and their funds is very important to us.

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead.   Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
