It seems that the banks in Canada may be Basel III compliant, but does anyone know if the credit unions are as well?

They also ensure these institutions maintain an adequate level of capital and liquidity to help protect depositors and creditors in case of an adverse event."

There is no federal legislated requirement for this, as far as I'm aware. Most credit unions are provincially regulated, in terms of their capital and liquidity adequacy, so standards can vary from province to province, though there is some coordination on this through the (admittedly dormant) Credit Union Prudential Supervisors Association, https://cupsa-aspc.ca/home.html. It's a national coordinating body among provincial credit union regulatory agencies. sf-cool
