Investing in Community

As part of our mission to provide financial services for the betterment of our members, employees and communities, we invest our skills and resources to create positive social impact. A few initiatives we're proud to be involved in include:
  • Providing access to financial services and credit in communities abandoned by mainstream providers, like Winnipeg’s North End 
  • Creating business and financial literacy opportunities by partnering with Tec Voc High School to operate Stingers Credit Union, a branch of ACU that is run by high school students
  • Investing in foreign-trained professionals through specialized loans that enable them to have their credentials recognized and pursue their careers
  • Offering a unique opportunity for new Canadians to join our credit union and gain access to the financial services and advice they need 
  • Providing nonprofits, cooperatives and ‘mission-based’ businesses with the financing and other services they need to achieve their missions
  • Partnering with community organizations to offer workplace training opportunities for people from marginalized groups
  • Partnering with the Manitoba Real Estate Association, Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs and the Province of Manitoba to invest in homeownership opportunities for Indigenous families
  • Responding to the Manitoba Islamic Association by creating a unique mortgage product for the Muslim community 
  • Through grants and sponsorships, investing in events, programs, and organizations that create social inclusion, environmental sustainability, and support community enterprise development
  • Employee volunteering that fosters social justice, economic self-reliance and environmental sustainability in our communities
