I have been using Innovation’s No-Fee Bank Account for years. The app is so convenient and easy to use!
There are no conditions with this account.
I can just bank and know it’s free!
More reasons to bank with us!
Our No-Fee Bank Account has no monthly fees and no minimum balance requirement. So you can save as much as $360/year in bank fees.
You earn cash dividends simply by doing your everyday banking with us. The more you bank with us, the more you benefit.
Your business helps us support your community in the form of scholarships, sponsorships and grants. We allocate 2% to 4% of pre-tax profits every year to our communities.
Your other bank account may be charging you as much as $360/year in fees. We’d love to help you save that money to put to better use.
A second bank account can also organize and save your money. Avoid annoying limits or Interac e-Transfer fees as our No-Fee Bank account has neither. Use it as little or as much as you please, without penalty.
We are real, but we are a credit union – which is just like a bank only you have more say in how we’re run.
Over 47,000 Canadians have an Innovation No-Fee Bank Account with us. We have been around for over 60 years. Many happy members think of us as a best kept banking secret.
Credit unions are not-for-profits created to serve our members. We’re just like a bank except our customers (members) own us. Members join by paying a one-time membership fee of $5.
Our main goal is to provide better products and services to our members, not seek a profit like banks do. Any money we earn is invested back into the organization, issued as cash dividends to our members or donated back into the community.
Our branches – or advice centres as we like to call them – are located primarily in western Saskatchewan. We serve the rest of the province digitally – including almost 3,000 members in Regina and Saskatoon. We also have members all across Canada!
As for ATMs, Innovation members have access to a Canadian network of surcharge-free ATMs. Just look for the ‘ding free!’ decal or download the ATM locator app.
We have mobile advisors in Regina and Saskatoon that can meet you at two Innovation office locations. We’re flexible!
There’s no pressure to move everything. Try us out and if you like how much you save you can gradually switch more items over.
