Canada's Credit Unions Are Bankrupt! What You Need To Know About Your Credit Union!

in #money2 years ago (edited)

CU s.jpg
I've touched upon how the big Canadian banks do not hold your deposits available in money. They only cover a minimal account usually under 5%. If you didn't know this, you might be surprised how the banks have lied to you all this time. You might have thought that your deposits in your bank account are your money. That is false. It is a little liability a loan to the bank that they will have to make good on when you want the loan(deposit) back.

Your bank account in Canada is supposed to be covered if it is under $100k. The fund that covers these accounts is called the CDIC. Canada Deposit and Insurance Corporation. It might surprise you that they only hold 0.39% of all of the deposits, but that is why the government implemented the Bail-In regime! To steal your deposits you thought was yours and recapitalize the bank that used your money in the first place to invest and lose it!

It is time to talk about Credit Unions as they are usually called the options to big banks. Below I have looked at most of the provinces big credit unions and their cash to deposits ratio. The results might surprise you. They are not as good as people have thought they might be.

What about Deposit insurance? Since I am in Manitoba Canada, I will use the numbers from the deposit insurance corporation for Manitoban Credit Unions. Here are the numbers thanks to Nathan, a good friend for providing me with the link to it! I'll be using the top 100 list of CU and the listed Manitoban ones and their deposits. They currently have about: $26,755,462,472 in deposits. The small province of Manitoba holds a lot of money in their credit unions vs. the bigger provinces. How much does the deposit insurance fund hold which is supposed to protect all deposits? They have about $287,116,000 in assets and only $913,000 in cash. How does that look vs the approx credit union deposits? 1.08% of total deposits are covered by the total asset holdings of the fund, but if you take readily available cash 0.01% ready to insure the Credit unions deposits. So the Manitoban credit union deposit insurer has the same issues as the CDIC who "protects" bank deposit holders. They are all the same running the same Ponzi scheme hoping no one exposes them.

You can find the numbers for Manitoba here: http://depositguarantee.mb.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DGCM_Annual_Report_2016.pdf

Also, I would love for suggestions on banks you want to see looked at. Even Credit unions all across the world. Let's expose these financial institutions hiding the truth from you! It is time to wake up!!

Love, Peace and Voluntaryism,

Sort:  

Thank you John just what I am looking for, CU does not look too good an alternate either. Well back to stacking some more PM.

Doing this research I've lost any belief that any banks or credit unions are any good. I didn't have a lot of trust before, but this is terrible.

What other options do you have other than, Crypto currency, PM's and cash under the mattress?

Id buy land if I didn't have to sign a lifetime of Debt to get it where I'm from.

Uh oh... We need insurance for the insurance to help protect Canadians right to access Ponzi schemes.

If the government and consumers and businesses are all broke why not add in the banks. lol Seriously though pretty scary.

What timing! Just opened a CU account last week. 😆

Appreciate you sharing your research!

The entire economic system is based on debt. That's why I hold primary wealth in the form of hard physical assets, property, etc.

If your bank/credit union has only 2% of deposits covered, is it really a bank/credit union?

If crypto-currencies weren't already a thing,
I would open up a money storage place.

In fact, check cashing places are just about that.
Their fees are posted up front and in your face, and your money is your money.

Aww man. Everyone I know says they are sooo safe. SMH.
Great info. Joy

When one loans their money to a bank or credit union, they give ownership of that money to the bank. It is a loan to the bank. Thinking it is "my money," might give one the same comfort that Santa gives to children, but it is false and will be a mistake if you invest ALL your money into banks.
If the money that I loan to a bank was actually still my money, the bank would have to ask my permission to use those fund every time they wanted to make money with it.
