Review of Canvas Credit Union from a CSU Employee:
“I recently took advantage of the Canvas Credit Union CSU employee discount for a home mortgage refinance. I extensively shopped other credit unions and online lenders and the rate/pricing from Canvas was truly unbeatable. I’d even say almost unbelievable! The loan officer and processor were both a delight to work with and they even arranged for the closing to take place at my own home. I highly recommend taking advantage of the Canvas mortgage programs.” –Greg Lewis
