What people are saying about us
Sebastian BuccioniEstonian Music Week

Northern Birch has provided instrumental support that helps us deliver our programming. During this precarious time in the arts, we are thankful to have been able to provide artists with opportunities to perform as part of Estonian Music Week. The team at Northern Birch is a joy to work with and together we've collaborated to promote our events and our partnership. Northern Birch's active and engaged support has undoubtedly been a key ingredient of our success.

What is your role at Northern Birch Credit Union?


Member Service Representative

What do you like most about working at Northern Birch Credit Union?


I like that I get to speak Estonian at work every day and to work in the community I grew up in. I have enjoyed learning a lot since starting this job, and like that I learn something new every day.

What's your favourite restaurant or food?


So hard to choose! I love that in Toronto you can travel the world through food. One of my favourite spots near Eesti Maja is Ryus Noodle Bar. I also enjoy cooking and baking with whatever delicious produce is available at different times of year, whether from my own small garden or from the farmers' market.

Is there a community group or organization that's near and dear to your heart?


Kungla folkdance group has been a huge part of my life since childhood. Folkdancing always puts a smile on my face and energizes me. I am so thankful that my parents got me dancing at a young age, and that I have been able to pass my love of dance along by teaching the Kungla children's group and at Estonian School.

What's on your bucket list?


I dream of doing a long cabin-to-cabin hike with only a small backpack, though I haven't quite yet decided where. I also dream of having a big food garden of my own.

How do you like to spend your weekends and free time? 


In nature - hiking, biking, swimming, gardening, and seeing what cool plants, bugs and animals I find.
