Farm Credit Canada - Credit Union Liaison Committee
The Farm Credit Canada (FCC)- Credit Union Liaison Committee was established to provide regular, direct communications and discussions between senior FCC and credit union system representatives relating to issues and opportunities of mutual interest.
The Liaison Committee explores areas of collaboration, information sharing regarding agricultural lending, as well as Canadian agricultural policy. The Committee holds, at least, two meetings annually. The Liaison Committee has also sponsored meetings between FCC and credit unions in most provinces over the past two years. This engagement has resulted in increased co-operation, credit union-FCC co-lending, referral business and joint learning events involving credit unions, FCC and credit union members."
The Liaison Committee has also established an Issue Resolution Process that seeks to clarify and address extraordinary concerns credit unions (and FCC) may have about activities in the market.
