What's NewAt Casera, there's always something new happening.

Because We Love Winnipeg Expand/Collapse

Since 2002, Casera and its staff have wholeheartedly supported the United Way of Winnipeg by holding annual fundraising campaigns.  We believe in building stronger neighbourhoods by supporting the people and organizations that live, work, and play in them.  One of the guiding principles of co-operatives around the world is a concern for the communities they conduct business in. As a financial cooperative, Casera has integrated this belief into its core values.  In other words, we foster leadership and enrichment by proudly supporting programs, events, and projects that enhance our neighbourhoods.

This year, our United Way Campaign kickoff date was September 24, 2019.  We encourage our members to drop by our branches to join in our fundraising efforts!  100% of your donation stays right here in Winnipeg.  Donations $20 or more will be issued tax receipts.  

To donate online to Casera’s campaign, go to  https://unitedwaywinnipeg.ca/give/and ensure to check off the box on the payment page that says “This donation is part of a workplace campaign”.

The History of Co-op Week in Canada

Co-op Week has been celebrated by Francophones throughout Canada since 1958. In 1981 celebrations were held among Anglophone co-ops in the Maritimes and Saskatchewan.  The event went national in 1982 with the encouragement of the Co-operative Union of Canada, a predecessor of the Canadian Co-operative Association.

International Credit Union Day® will be celebrated around the world on Thursday, October 17th with a common theme of “Local Service. Global Reach.”  2019 marks the 71st ICU Day since its inception in 1948.  For more information, click the link to visit the World Council of Credit Unions website:  http://www.woccu.org/events_and_engagement/icuday

In Canada, the Canadian Credit Union Association (CCUA) has released the theme: “You First.  Banking Second.”  The first credit union formed in North America was in Levis, Quebec in 1900 by Alphonse Desjardins.

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.
