About Organization

For over 40 years, Momentum Financial Services Group has been committed to providing financial solutions that meet the evolving needs of the consumers and business owners in our communities. We rely on our large retail network to provide our customers with diverse financial products such as loans, check cashing, money transfers, and prepaid cards.

We are a financial services company that began with the belief of putting people first. From the moment we first opened our doors to the company we are today – we have always stood by our goal to set the highest standards for customer service, convenience, and quality financial products and services.

As the word momentum implies, we want to help our customers get where they need to be. It starts with a moment – an emergency happens, an opportunity arises – and ends, not with an installment loan, but with a way to get back to work or take that next step towards the future. We believe in our customers, and we're here to provide them with a little momentum to build their positive future.

Since we opened our doors in 1979, our goal has been to empower customers to manage their finances and reach their financial goals. We understand that a loan isn't just a loan – it's momentum to achieve a positive future.

We believe in giving back to the communities where we live and work. We proudly contribute over $250,000 annually to charities and non-profit organizations, along with using our time and talent to serve in our local communities throughout Canada and the United States.
