Share Equity

When you open an account at Lake View Credit Union, you must purchase an equity share to become a member. Equity shares for adults are $25.00, and $5.00 for minors under 19. The law requires you to provide us with two pieces of valid identification, along with your Social Insurance Number. Below we have listed the acceptable forms of identification. Please, note, one piece of your identification must be from the primary group.


  • Driver’s License
  • Passport


  • Healthcare card
  • Birth Certificate
  • Status Card
  • Credit Card

Accounts for Minors (Under 19)

To open an account for a minor, you must provide a Birth Certificate and Healthcare card. If the minor has a Social Insurance Number, that should be presented as well. A minor is not of the legal age of consent to sign documents, and therefore must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to sign an agreement on their behalf. This parent or guardian must be a member in their own right at Lake View Credit Union.
