Three Manitoba credit unions approve merger


The member-owners of three major Manitoba credit unions have voted in favour of a merger.

Assiniboine Credit Union, Caisse Financial Group and Westoba Credit Union announced the news in a release on Wednesday, saying the merger will create a “uniquely Manitoba credit union.”

The organizations are expected to merge effective Jan. 1, 2025. The new credit union will have 50 branches, 216,000 members, and $9.6 billion in assets.

“We believe a merged credit union will have even greater capacity to create shared value for employees, members, and communities,” said Assiniboine board chair Crystal Laborero in a news release.

The boards of directors at all three co-operatives recommended the merges as a way to make the organizations more sustainable.

Voting took place from June 6 to June 19. The resolution was passed with 89 per cent of Assiniboine members, 84 per cent of Caisse members and 88 per cent of Westoba members voting in favour. Top Stories
