The Farm Loan Board is pleased to partner with Nova Scotia’s Credit Unions, taking advantage of our shared local rural roots to enhance credit opportunities for agricultural clients. While each organization will continue to make credit decisions using criteria appropriate to their own policies, this partnership is expected to provide opportunities for clients to access a range of credit products and advisory services.
