Have you heard? Co-operative banking is banking with a higher purpose. It’s only at credit unions.

Last night we had the privilege of presenting an Ottawa Community Loan Fund award (with MPP Yasir Naqvi) to Mr. Amir Rahim for his success in 2013.

Amir is the owner and founder of Grounded Kitchen & Coffeehouse, a very successful café in the heart of downtown Ottawa.

Last October, Alterna helped to provide him with a microloan to open his second location in Ottawa, Backdrop Food & Drink, where last night's event was held.

Congratulations Amir!

We were at York University today as Lynne Campbell, Branch Manager of our York Branch, presented the Alterna Social Economy Scholarship to 3rd year student, Rita Cheung!

Supporting the communities we serve, our young people and financial literacy are in Alterna’s DNA. As such, we provide scholarships to exemplary young leaders in the area of social economy.

We were very impressed with Rita's ongoing commitment to promoting awareness and knowledge of the social economy. Congratulations Rita!
