About Canals & Trails Credit Union
Canals & Trails Credit Union was established in 1959 and is originally known as Lockport School Credit Union. As the community of Lockport grew and the population expanded, Lockport Schools Credit Union changed its name to Tri-Township Schools Federal Credit Union. Besides serving school districts in Lockport, Romeoville, Bolingbrook, Crest Hill, Homer Glen, Mokena, New Lenox, Orland Park, Lemont, and Plainfield, the credit union can also serve many local businesses, government groups.
In 2002, our credit union underwent a major change in our field membership. In order to grow and thrive in the future, we converted from a federal charter credit union to a state charter, and eventually, a community charter credit union. This change allowed us to serve members that also work or live in those communities.
A merger between Romeoville Community Credit Union and Canals & Trails Credit Union took place in 2022. Canals & Trails Credit Union was able to expand thanks to the merger and give members access to branches in Romeoville and Lockport.
Our mission is to provide ultimate member satisfaction, and we believe in the philosophy of “People Helping People.” Call us or stop by today to join our credit union!
