Innovation Credit Union recognized as Caring Company by Imagine Canada
Innovation Credit Union is thrilled to announce it has been recognized as a Caring Company by Imagine Canada. It's the only Saskatchewan credit union to earn this designation.
“We are incredibly honored and humbled to receive this acknowledgement,” says Innovation CEO Dan Johnson. “Our board, management and staff take great pride in redefining banking by helping Canadians simplify their lives and reach their financial goals by reinvesting profits into our members, our communities, and our people.” Johnson continues, adding, “That’s something we are proud to call Responsible Banking.”
The designation is given to companies who lead by example and set the standard for corporate giving in Canada. Caring Companies contribute a minimum of 1% of their pre-tax profit to initiatives that support the communities where their employees work and live. In 2017, Innovation Credit Union contributed over 2% of our pre-tax profits to activities that support our local communities.
This honor highlights Innovation’s commitment to various community programs that truly make a difference, such as:
Battlefords Boys & Girls Club – Innovation Credit Union Grub Club
The Centre – Innovation Credit Union Thursday Meal Program
The City of Swift Current – Swift Current United Way Active Play Program
Saskatchewan Co-operative Association (SCA) – The Innovation Credit Union Earl Hanson Graduate Co-op Camp

It also recognizes the importance of their scholarship program and community development projects including:
SJHL Assistance Program in honour of the Humboldt Broncos
The Swift Current Canadian Mental Health Association – New Building Project
