An upgraded app in response to feedback


The great thing about a digital experience is the ability to continuously improve it. With your help, we’ve learned a thing or two since we launched our new digital banking experience in 2021.

Coming October 12, your Access Credit Union mobile banking app will be updated with a fresh, clean look along with an intuitive interface that offers a smoother navigation experience.


If you have automatic app updates set up, your new app will be upgraded and ready to go on the upgrade day. If not, you will be prompted to install the app from the Apple Store or Google Play.

The digital journey that got us here


In 2018, we were told our existing digital banking platform was being discontinued. We wouldn’t settle for less, so we partnered with four credit unions to find the best new digital banking solution for our members.

After years of research and testing, we worked with our technology partner to adapt award-winning global banking software with a focus on enhanced security and an empowering member experience.

In 2021, we launched our new digital banking experience. This upgrade was necessary to enhance security and introduce foundational technology needed to continue to build on the app’s functionality.

Following the initial learning curve for the new app, we listened to member feedback and worked with our technology partner to develop a cleaner interface and a more streamlined user experience.

And now we’re here!

Important: The one thing you need to do to prepare

Please have your username and password ready!


Biometric login information will not transfer over, so you will need to log in for the first time using your username and password. If you use "saved passwords" on your device, your Access Credit Union mobile app may carry over. However, we encourage all members who use digital banking to ensure they know their password in case it isn't saved on their device.

How to reset your password

You can reset your password using the “Forgot password?” option on the app login screen.

How to retrieve your username

If you forgot your username, you can also retrieve it from the app login screen by tapping "Forgot username?" 

A few cool new ​features to look forward to

Improved navigation

As an enhancement from the existing slide-out side menu, app navigation will feature an always-present menu at the bottom—similar to other mobile apps such as RBC and Tangerine.

Refreshed look

Aside from the new navigation and clean aesthetic look, the rest of the app functionality–such as completing transactions or changing settings–will remain unchanged from how it is.

Easy account views

Your primary account will be displayed on your account dashboard, and easy access to other accounts, balances, and transactions is just one or two taps away from any screen on the app.

The app will be compatible with Apple iPad, though other tablet users will continue to use accesscu.ca in their web browser to access online banking.

Are you a business member?

Key navigation change for business members:
A key change in navigation is when approving transactions; you will find the “Business Services” area of the app under the “Activity” heading along the bottom of the screen.

Currently that section is found in the hamburger menu at the top left of the screen. Please note that this applies only to approving transactions—delegate and consolidation activities must be completed via the desktop version of online banking.
