2022 National Credit Union Awards Winners

Published Date: May 10, 2022

For over 80 years, the National Credit Union Awards have served as a platform to highlight and celebrate outstanding leadership, community involvement and ingenuity across the credit union sector. It’s an opportunity for the system to gather together, honour accomplishments, learn from one another, and celebrate the innovation that stems from Canadian credit unions.  

This year, CCUA celebrated the National Credit Union Award winners during the 2022 National Conference for Canada’s Credit Unions. The session featured lots of great insight from all the presenters, who spoke on their credit union’s winning projects and initiatives.

Congratulations to all of this year’s winners!
