    Interface (online, telephone, in-person, etc.): Rated 4 / 5 stars

    How long have you banked with them?: 3 yrs

    Why do you bank with them?: Top rates. Seemingly a solid company with some form of a guarantee by Corp. of Manitoba.

    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: Friendly, helpful customer service. Immediate live person, no menus, wait. Excellent rates.

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: One yearly statement skipped. But a call confirmed all the info in a friendly, prompt manner.

    General comments: Main concern is the guarantee. Should there be a market collapse does the Corporation of Manitoba back all deposits fully? And interest? One may not know for sure until it happens!

    Fees: Rated 2 / 5 stars

    Interface (online, telephone, in-person, etc.): Rated 4 / 5 stars

    How long have you banked with them?: 10 months

    Why do you bank with them?: Unlimited Deposit Insurance through the Deposit Guarantee Corp of Manitoba and high interest rates

    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: Fantastic customer service. They answer the phone quickly and always answer my questions. Fairly easy to setup electronic transfers through other banks, wish AF had a way to do this from their end.

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: Lower fees, they charge $1 per transfer out after 1 free. You must send a connected account agreement for joint holders to see each others accounts which seems a little strange.

    General comments: Nothing else

    Interface (online, telephone, in-person, etc.): Rated 5 / 5 stars

    How long have you banked with them?: Only a couple of months. I moved my retirement savings from a big bank cause they never seemed able to give me a break, despite 20+ years of banking there. The big banks are in the news with a lot of rate fixing scandals lately. Lately they are screwing us majorly by not passing on the Bank of Canada rate reductions.

    Why do you bank with them?: They came out first in a Financial Post interest rate comparison. I live in BC and was a little bit worried to send my $$ so far, but I could be realistic and consider them a credit union like all the ones we have and besides I'm comfortable with virtual banking. I'd been wanting to move to a credit union for a while. Every $ you spend is a vote for the kind of world you want to live in.

    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: They are very prompt, friendly and personable.

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: I would like to see them get more customers and take all the big banks' customers away.

    General comments: Time for change!

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: None that I can suggest. Stay the course in fact, it's working!
