About Credit Unions & Co-Ops

Credit unions serve more communities than any other financial institution, giving Manitobans substantially better access to quality financial services and products.

What is a Credit Union?

What is a Credit Union?
Credit unions are financial co-operatives and, like all co-operatives, are owned and controlled by the people who use their services. These people are members, and they all own shares in the credit union. As shareholders, members of many credit unions share in the profits every year. (more…)

The Credit Union Difference

Credit unions are driven by both economic and social concerns. They are community-based organizations that care not only about the bottom line of their businesses, but also the needs of their members and the quality of life in their communities. (more…)

CUCM Community Engagement

CUCM’s corporate giving is driven by decisions its employees make – as individuals and as a group through staff club events and the United Way/All Charities Campaign – about their own philanthropy. CUCM matches employee donations to organizations whose aims are consistent with CUCM’s core values and the spirit of Co-op Principle #7, Concern for Community. Through matching, employees and CUCM have contributed more than $1 million (an annual average of $113,422) over the past nine years to organizations that have a broad range of goals.

CUCM exposes employees to community organizations by inviting them to speak prior to CUCM staff meetings. And, by adding a Community Leadership & Engagement score to the company balanced scorecard, CUCM incents employees to donate time to organizations’ ongoing activities or special projects.
