The Town of Ignace says it’s frustrated that Alterna Credit Union is still pulling out of the community.

That despite efforts to keep the credit union open.

The president of Alterna say it will still close it’s branch in Ignace in the middle of the month.

Acting mayor Kim Baigrie says the met with the president via Zoom last week and offered a number of incentives.

But she says despite hours of consultations and discussions, the company president said they had already made up their mind about the closure.

The town says the decision is perplexing and disappointing, leaving Ignace without a banking outlet.
