Purpose of the UNI Community

Since 1936, UNI has been operating under the name Caisse populaire acadienne ltée. With assets of $3.8 billion and annual donations and sponsorships totalling $2.3 million, UNI is the largest francophone financial institution serving Acadian communities.

UNI, its 1,000 employees and 150,000 client owners firmly believe that one person’s prosperity should contribute to that of others. As a result, each day, the institution supports and finances projects that contribute to the well-being of New Brunswickers rather than shareholder profits elsewhere.

To make this vision a reality, UNI established a citizen cooperative consisting of 12 local committees, 108 representatives, real agents of change, and a provincial youth committee. They are the ones who set our cooperative dis apart from other institutions each and every day.

They are responsible for meeting the needs of communities and rallying those who create social, economic, environmental and cultural value for the exclusive benefit of New Brunswick’s citizens and business communities.
