Our purpose is to serve.
Casera Credit Union was founded in the boiler shop of the Canadian National Railway's Transcona Shops in 1951, the vision of 10 tradesmen who invested $5 each for an opportunity to save and borrow money. Since then, we have branched out from Transcona to St. Vital, changed our name from Transcona Credit Union to Casera, and along the way became one of Winnipeg's leading providers of innovative financial services.
Over the years, we have never lost our founders' roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-to-work attitude. We still believe that a person's character is just as valuable as their collateral and that the communities we do business in are our neighbourhoods too. Above all, we are proud of our determination to carry on the time-honoured tradition of face-to-face service.
At Casera, personal service is not just a promise — it is our purpose. Casera Credit Union's goal is simple: as a member-focused co-operative, we aim to provide exceptional service and innovative financial solutions to help families prosper, businesses succeed, and communities thrive.

Honouring truth, supporting reconciliation.
Casera acknowledges that our credit union operates in Transcona and St. Vital on Treaty One land — the homeland of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Ojibway, Dakota, and Dene peoples — and in the heart of the Metis Nation.
Out of respect for the generations of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples impacted by centuries of colonialism and the legacy of residential schools, Casera is seeking ways to participate in the course of reconciliation. We are guided by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's 92nd of 94 Calls to Action.
As a financial cooperative with an appreciation of and respect for diversity and inclusion, we strive to reflect the communities we serve. Going forward, Casera will continue building respectful relationships with the Indigenous community, ensuring that Indigenous peoples have access to financial services and employment at Casera. We know that their contribution can make our credit union stronger.
