At OWZW we are proud of our roots in the co-operative and credit union system. We offer expertise to credit unions in all facets of law applicable to credit unions and banking. OWZW currently provides legal services to numerous credit unions as well as to Credit Union Central and Credit Union Deposit Guarantee Corporation. We also offer advice and support to the credit union system through periodic seminars, Lending Information Bulletins (part of the Credit Union Lending Security Guide) and standardized deposit and lending documentation.
We keep abreast of changes to all legislation and regulation relating to banking, financing, secured transactions, governance, human resources and debt collection as well as updates to The Credit Union Act, 1998 and regulations, Privacy legislation and Anti-Money Laundering legislation.
Our experienced credit union team members are further supported by members of our Business Law, Debtor/Creditor & Insolvency Law, Labour Law and Employment Law teams.
