What's New at ECU

Interac e-Transfer® Enhanced User Features

Two more features from Interac® e-Transfer that you're going to love!

Request Money

A cool way to say you owe me money or an important tool to streamline payments. Easily request money that you are owed or use it as a friendly reminder when friends or family may have forgotten to pay you back. Using online or mobile banking select a contact, enter an amount and an account where funds are to be deposited as part of the request. There is even an option to add a personalized message or an invoice number if it's for a business! An Interac® e-Transfer notification will then be sent to the contact. Once they receive the notification, they can fulfill the request by logging into their online banking, and the funds will be immediately deposited into your bank account.


Interac® e-Transfer is easier with the new autodeposit feature that is a secure way to receive money without having to answer security questions for every transaction. Autodeposit is designed by linking your email address to a bank account at ECU. When an Interac® e-Transfer is sent the payment will automatically be deposited in the bank account associated with that email address. You will receive a notification that funds were deposited. There is no longer a need to select your Financial Institution, login to online banking and answer a security question!

Toys for Tots!

'Tis the season to be jolly and at Education Credit Union, we feel jolly when we brighten up Christmas morning for the children in our community.  It is time for the annual Toys for Tots donation collection in support of the Cambridge Firefighter’s Basket Fund.  Please help us make magical memories for families in need throughout this holiday season.

You can help by donating money or a new unwrapped toy and drop it off at any ECU Branch location.  Donating is simple by email, phone, or in person.  In recognition of your donation, we will write your name or company on a paper bear and hang it on display in the branch.  All donations collected will be used to purchase toys, which will be collected by the Cambridge Firefighters to distribute to needy families.

Thank you for helping us make Christmas morning a joy for our neighbours in our community.  Donations will be collected until Monday, December 10th.
