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.
In 61 of those communities, a credit union is the only financial institution in place to serve local residents and businesses.

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 Co-Operative Model

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…)

Credit Union History

The Origins of Co-operatives and Credit Unions
The story of co-operatives and credit unions began in Rochdale, England on December 21, 1844. The first co-operative, in Toad Lane, was created to supply wholesome, unadulterated food at reasonable prices to society members. (more…)

Why We’re Successful

Credit unions in Manitoba are successful for many reasons, but the number one reason is because they are different. With a credit union, you’re a member – not a number.

The 7 International Co-Operative Principles

The co-operative principles are guidelines by which co-operatives put their values into practice. (more…)

Credit Union Employee Giving and Community Service

Credit unions adhere to the co-operative principle of Concern for Community, routinely supporting organizations and events in the communities they serve. (more…)
