2021 National Credit Union Awards

For over 80 years, the National Credit Union Awards have served as a platform to shine the spotlight on outstanding leadership, community involvement and ingenuity across the 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 2021 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!
