ACU acknowledges that in Winnipeg our credit union operates on Treaty One land; homeland of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Ojibway, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and in the heart of the Metis Nation. In Thompson and Gillam, we operate on Treaty Five land.
We respect the treaties, the land and the water that sustain us. It is our responsibility to understand the meaning of the treaties, to learn about the truth of our history, and to dedicate ourselves to reconciliation.
As we transform banking in order to create a world where financial services in local communities contribute to a sustainable future for all, we will work in collaboration with all of our relations to ensure that the world we are building is more sustainable, equitable, inclusive, and prosperous for many generations to come.
ACU’s learning journey is led by our Indigenous Leadership Circle, and our commitments in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and our commitment to the Winnipeg Indigenous Accord.
We have a long journey ahead of us in this country and in our communities to rebuild healthy and respectful relationships with all our relations. Assiniboine Credit Union is committed to doing our part in that journey.
