About us

CUMIS is a leading insurance solutions provider to Canada’s credit unions. We deliver competitive financial services, innovative technology solutions and effective partnerships.

Our roots

Our story is your story. The CUNA Mutual Insurance Society, and its Canadian arm, CUMIS, was born out of a tragedy that highlighted the need for insurance protection for its operations. Known as the “Lesson of the Linesman,” the credit union member borrowed $250 just two days before his fatal accident. Two other linemen, cocreators of the loan, but loyal to their fallen colleague, repaid the debt from their own limited savings.
