Hi Peter,

We really should be updating this forum name, either to its legal name (DUCA Financial Services Credit Union) or its common name (DUCA Financial Services). sf-cool

Thanks,
Doug

Arguably, "DUCA Credit Union" remains a common name, at least for now, given a recent press release, the HTML title of its website, and Wikipedia.

The Celero press release and Wikipedia article are likely inaccurate. This leads me to believe the HTML title, to the extent people look at such details, was also an oversight on the part of the website designer. I suspect, if Marketing had their way, it'd probably be "DUCA" or "DUCA Financial Services Credit Union". Note, too, the footer of the DUCA website includes the latter.

DUCA's 2018 digital (HTML) annual report makes no mention of the legal name, other than in that footer, but it also makes no mention of "DUCA Credit Union". It frequently refers to itself, severally, as "DUCA" and "the Credit Union".

DUCA is the common name, but given it's a credit union, I'd recommend a parenthetical qualifier, like this:

DUCA (credit union)

or:

DUCA (Ontario credit union)

Coast Capital Savings is federally-regulated, so CDIC insurance is apparent, and thus doesn't need the parenthetical qualifier.

Cheers,
Doug

What the f**k is a parenthetical qualifier.

Did you really want to know or did you really want to swear at Doug without getting deleted?
If you really want to know, then find a better way of asking. Or look it up.

Well said, Loonie. I don't need to say anything further, other than thank you. sf-cool

Cheers,

Certainly not the kind of language appropriate to this Forum.

Thank you, Loonie, for your admonition to this user.

Totally agree.

Let's show some respect here. In this me, me, me world where we now live it's becoming more and more rare to see. We have to teach by example. These kinds of crude comments should be edited out. If one has a legitimate question, ask it politely.

Please write your comments in the forum.
