Notice of Business Account Fee Changes

New Fees as of June 1, 2022

Each year, Luminus Financial reviews our account and service fees to ensure we are providing the best service to our Member-Owners for the lowest possible price. On June 1, 2022, a number of our business account fees will be updated to reflect changes in service costs and to keep Luminus competitive.

Why do I pay fees at all?

Part of our commitment as a credit union is to keep fees as low as possible while providing the best service for our members. While we offer several products with zero fees, such as our FiveStar Chequing Account there are still some transactions that will be charged. Why is this?

In short, many of the fees are paid directly to external services providers, such as when you withdraw money from an INTERAC ATM machine. Other fees pay for printing and delivery of items such as business cheques or for transactions that require a staff member to manually process or review them such as cheque verification, government filings, and in-person transactions.

So, while we continue to work on keeping fees low, there will always be some transactions that result in a fee to our member-owners.

What fees will be changing?

As of June 1, 2022, a number of transactions will see minor increases such as:

  • Bill payments - $1.00 increasing $1.25
  • Cheque clearing - $1.00 increasing $1.25
  • Transfers - $1.00 increasing $1.25
