New Honours for Community Builders Expand/Collapse

Over the course of its 67 years of service, Casera has actively supported community-focused programs, events and initiatives that enhance our Transcona and south St. Vital neighbourhoods. We know there are many dedicated individuals and nonprofit groups that work tirelessly and at times without recognition to make our community a vibrant place in which to live and work.

To acknowledge the good deeds of these volunteers and organizations, Casera has established the annual Casera Community Awards.

“Our aim is to bring recognition to deserving community leaders and groups in Transcona and south St. Vital,” Thomas says. “We want to celebrate their endeavours and accomplishments and share their success stories with others.”

There are two categories of awards:

Community Leadership – The Leadership Award honours those individuals who over time have contributed to the social fabric of their community through visionary leadership or tireless volunteer work.

Community Enrichment – The Enrichment Award celebrates nonprofit organizations that over time have made significant contributions to the well-being of the neighbourhoods in which they work.

For information about the 2017 award recipient, check out:  http://www.uncomplicatedbanking.ca/wilma-sotas-honoured/ or our July 2017 Newsletter.

Nominations are now open for the 2018 year. 


Can we have your email address?

Emails are great for delivering timely news about upcoming events, exciting products, special offers and new technologies.

Our newsletter, Casera News, has long been one way for our credit union to communicate with members, but it can’t stay in touch with them between issues. Email, on the other hand, has become an essential way for businesses with loyal customers (or members) to deliver relevant news at opportune times.

We’re looking forward to one day communicating directly with our members through email. In a quicker and more focused way, we’ll be able to reach out when we have exciting new products and technologies to present, beneficial campaigns and offers to announce, and important stories to tell.

To help us get there, we are collecting email addresses from members. If we don’t already have your email address, please let us know the next time you visit your neighbourhood branch or email it to us at talktous@caseracu.ca, including your name and phone number.

In appreciation for sending us your email address, your name will be entered into a draw to win $100 cash!

Draws will be made quarterly. First draw to be made February 7, 2018.  Three members (one from each of Casera’s three branches) will have a chance to win $100 cash. Members must be 18 years or older to enter.  Note: If we already have your email address on file, your name is automatically entered into the draw.

SHARE & WIN Expand/Collapse

To encourage our loyal members to continue recruiting new members, we've launched SHARE & WIN; a new friend referral program that gives members even more reason to tell their friends and family about Casera.

SHARE & WIN is a way for members to show their loyalty to Casera and at the same share in the chance of winning money. After the current member fills out a SHARE & WIN form and the new member returns the completed form, both are entered into a quarterly draw for a chance to win $100 each.

The new member must meet some qualifying criteria — they must open an account and maintain at least one product, such as a chequing account, GIC, personal loan or mortgage. The SHARE & WIN referral also pays for their required $5 share.
