2017 National Conference for Canada's Credit Unions

For over a century credit unions have helped define Canada’s financial industry. With a vision in mind, together we will reach even greater levels of success!

Credit union leaders have long understood the significance of innovation and diversity. Since the creation of the first Canadian credit union, there was an understanding that true success meant the transformation of an industry. Now, more than ever, we need to dig deep into those roots and as we transform ourselves to meet the needs of our members in a changing world. We need to continue to push the boundaries, to collaborate, to innovate and to be the difference Canadians need us to be.

This year’s conference has many new and exciting features including the Canada 150 Volunteer Challenge, integration of the MACU Marketing Program, a Filene Innovation Session Series, and the Regulatory Compliance Forum, to name a few.
