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

Guided by the international co-operative principle of Concern for Community, Manitoba credit unions are strong supporters of a wide range of community organizations and events throughout the province.

Lafleche Credit Union serves the surrounding communities with branches in Lafleche and Glentworth. The Lafleche Credit Union is accountable to its members through a local board of directors who establish policies and report on results.

You bring a minimum of six years’ progressive senior management experience, preferably within a credit union or cooperative context.  Your analytical expertise, decisive leadership skills and strong understanding of the management of a financial institution are complemented by a graduate level business degree or equivalent experience.

You understand the importance of being able to identify and articulate the larger picture while seeking opportunity to lead the Lafleche Credit Union into the future.

You are a passionate, consensus-building executive who actively engages with the members and potential members as a relationship builder, advisor and advocate within a multi-stakeholder environment.

You bring energy, passion, vision, integrity and humility to your work and are skilled at communicating your vision and building consensus to execute on that vision. You foster a culture of member service with your unwavering commitment to excellence, your passion to empower staff and your ability to inspire excellence in others.

You will inspire action across the Lafleche Credit Union’s team and champion initiatives to achieve goals laid out in its strategic plan.  A confident leader, you are not afraid to make a decision and stand behind it.
