Social Responsibility and Canada's Credit Unions
The credit union system's democratic and co-operative values make the system truly unique, and inspire credit unions to care about the communities they serve. In 2011, Canada's credit unions contributed more than $41.4 million to their communities in the form of direct donations, financial services, sponsorships, scholarships and bursaries. Across the country, credit unions build stronger communities through donations and sponsorships, community economic development, volunteerism and other socially responsible activities.
Based on the Community Involvement Survey, the Social Responsibility and Canada's Credit Unions brochure helps credit unions communicate about the system's socially responsible leadership and activities – to members, to community partners, to media and to government.
