Manitoba Start Employer Award — Another Reason to Celebrate!

May 18, 2018 - ACU has been awarded a Manitoba Start 2018 Legacy Award for Excellence.

The Legacy Award for Excellence recognizes a distinguished organization for its contributions to the advancement of highly skilled newcomers in Manitoba, advocating newcomer employment and inclusion.

The award reflects the fact that we recognize and value the skills internationally trained workers bring to our business.

Awards were presented to Assiniboine and partner credit unions Cambrian and Steinbach at the Manitoba Start Employer Awards 2018 Luncheon on May 17, 2018 which was held at the Metropolitan Entertainment Centre, Winnipeg.

The program has been a major success for ACU and its participants, with demonstrated results:

  • 53 newcomers completed the program
  • 98% hired after completing the program
  • 72% of hires have been promoted one or more times

Through this program, participants gain work experience in the Canadian financial sector which increases their odds of gaining long-term employment in their field. We benefit by having access to potential new employees who possess insights into their cultural community, which in turn helps ACU better meet the particular banking needs of a wide variety of communities. It has also made ACU a highly desirable place of employment for newcomers.  

Approximately 25 different languages are spoken by ACU employees!
