About Us

Atlantic Edge Credit Union is full-service credit union serving over 17,500 members across Newfoundland and Labrador. Atlantic Edge was formed with the amalgamation of Eagle River Credit Union and Leading Edge Credit Union. From a foundation of shared values, community roots, and purpose-driven cultures, Atlantic Edge continues to build on the strong traditions that that existed in both of its legacy credit unions.

Eagle River Credit Union was formed in 1984 by a group of committed residents and organizations working in co-operation with the Labrador Fishermen’s Union Shrimp Company Ltd. The group was united in their goal of ensuring access to banking and financial services in the communities along the Labrador Coast. Over time, Eagle River has expanded organically and through three amalgamations to further meet the needs of their surrounding communities.

Leading Edge Credit Union was formed in 2009 with the amalgamation of the Codroy Valley Credit Union and Brook Street Credit Union. From its legacy credit unions, Leading Edge was deeply rooted in the fishing and forestry industries, serving communities throughout western and southwestern Newfoundland dating back to the 1930s.
