Canadian Credit Union Association

The National Mentorship Program (NMP) pairs industry leaders with employees identified as future leaders in the credit union system. The program is fully funded by CCUA and offers mentorship opportunties across four streams in full digital format.

Mentorship streams

  • Director Stream: Collaborate and connect with directors from other provinces or credit unions. Earn up to 5 CE credits if you are an ACCUD (Accredited Canadian Credit Union Director) by being a mentor or mentee.
  • Digital Agility Stream: An opportunity for digital experts to step up and mentor colleagues. Gain new leadership skills and help others learn about today’s digital landscape.
  • Women’s Stream: The goal of this stream is to give women additional support and confidence to take that next career step.
  • Leadership Stream: This long-standing stream is open to leaders in senior positions wanting to mentor an employee in any operational area and those who are looking to build leadership capacity.

The National Mentorship program is delivered in full digital format through MentorCity®, an online mentoring community.

“This program and the interaction between credit union employees only serves to make the whole credit union industry better and stronger
