Sunova Credit Union ("Sunova"), operating as Hubert or Happysavings.ca, appears to be engaged in unauthorized deposit taking in the provinces of Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia. The authorities in those provinces have issued Cease and Desist Orders to Sunova directing it to cease doing business in the provinces. In addition, this entity claims in advertising material to be "Canada's newest…online bank." Members of the public are advised that Sunova is neither a bank nor an authorized foreign bank in Canada, and is not supervised by OSFI.
