Co-operative Values

As a financial co-operative, the democratically elected board of directors of Assiniboine Credit Union is guided by the International Co-operative Principles and is therefore committed to governing ethically and transparently while being accountable to our 110,000+ members. As a member-owner, you vote for the members you want to see representing you on the board of directors. And as a member of Assiniboine Credit Union, you're also part of a global movement of 1 billion people who are members of 2.6 million co-ops around the world.

International Co-operative Principles

No matter what country they're based in, co-operatives generally operate according to principles adopted by the International Co-operative Alliance.

How co-ops build a better world

Co-operatives exist to serve their members as well as local, national, regional and international mandates.

More than 100,000 members are involved in governing their co-operative. Manitoba is home to over 350 co-ops; in 2010, Manitoba co-ops contributed over $1.7 billion in economic value to the Manitoba economy. Read more:
