Unclaimed Balances

    The Credit Union Deposit Guarantee Corporation (the Corporation) receives unclaimed balances from Alberta Credit Unions. The unclaimed balances are customer accounts transferred to the Corporation from credit unions after ten years of inactivity.

    The Corporation published in Edmonton Journal and Calgary Herald the unclaimed balances received from credit unions. Unclaimed balances advertised in previous years are also held by the Corporation.

    In accordance with the Credit Union Act, the Corporation holds the unclaimed balances for a further 20 years.
