Your Credit Union

Effective January 1, 2022 Leading Edge Credit Union and Eagle River Credit Union are officially one. Together, we are operating under the name Atlantic Edge Credit Union.

As we integrate our operations, we are committed to improving your banking experience and advising you regularly of any changes to services or account information. We are also pleased to welcome and serve members at our 11 branch locations.

For your current day-to-day banking needs, it’s business as usual.
  • There will be no immediate changes to your account numbers, debit cards, credit cards or cheques.
  • Any direct deposits or automated bill payments that you have set up will not be affected.
  • There are no changes to your online or mobile banking services. You can continue to use the links or apps you already have in place.
It will take time for us to complete all the integration activities. As we work through the transition, you may continue to see references to your former credit union on your online banking sites and in-branch. We will advise members regularly of any changes to services or account information as the integration progresses.

For any member-related questions, please connect with us at or visit any of our 11 branch locations.

Once the feedback was collected and analyzed, a recommendation was put forward to choose the name Atlantic Edge Credit Union.

One of the most important pillars of our brand is our direct connection to the communities where we live and work. All 11 branches will continue to honor the legacy of their communities, with the preservation of their branch names.
