A Canadian credit union, the $2.9 billion Affinity of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, said this week it is joining the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, an Amsterdam organization of banks and credit unions devoted to social initiatives in such areas as environment and community building  Affinity said its joining might help set the stage for  U.S. credit unions to sign up.

They are Vancity, Vancouver, British Columbia and Assiniboine Credit Union in Manitoba.
