Sudbury Credit Union Receives "Best Place to Work" Award

We are honoured and thrilled to announce that Sudbury Credit Union has been selected as the winner of the Best Place to Work award at the Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce 2024 Business Excellence Awards!

SCU has been a part of the Sudbury community since 1951, and is committed to the well-being of our employees, members and the communities we serve. Beyond banking, we are focused on taking care of the financial health of our members and that begins with our employees. They are the heart of this organization. Their knowledge and expertise, their care and compassion for each and every member, and their commitment to their role in building a stronger community is what sets us apart.

Each member of our SCU family has fully embraced our core principle of ‘people helping people’. It’s evident in the way they take care of our members’ financial health, in the way they help out in our community by volunteering with local organizations and charities, and in the way they care for and support each other as co-workers and as a family.

Congratulations to each and every one of our employees and Board Members!

We’d also like to congratulate our fellow nominees in this award category: J.L. Richards & Associates Limited and Technica Mining.

Thank you to Incapture for creating the video which highlights why SCU is the 2024 BEA Best Place to Work!


Unveiling of the Sudbury Credit Union Theatre at Sudbury Indie Cinema Co-Op

Staff, board and members present a donation to Sudbury Indie Cinema

On October 19, 2023, Sudbury Indie Cinema Co-Op unveiled the naming of the Sudbury Credit Union Theatre.

Sudbury Indie Cinema Co-op is a not-for-profit co-operative, bringing the best in independent cinema to Northern Ontario with carefully selected films that give a voice to lesser-heard perspectives. They are mission-driven, rather than profit-driven, and actively support other arts organizations, grassroots not-for-profits and local homegrown filmmakers.

Sudbury Credit Union is a locally owned and operated financial co-operative, providing financial products and services to their members throughout the City of Greater Sudbury. Committed to the well-being of their members, employees and community, Sudbury Credit Union has been a supporter of countless local organizations whose work in the community betters the lives of all those living here.

As fellow co-operatives, Sudbury Credit Union and Sudbury Indie Cinema Co-Op are guided by a set of co-operative principles, which keep their need for profitability balanced with the needs of their members and the well-being of their community. Both organizations believe that they have a responsibility to help make a difference in the communities they exist in, and contribute to meaningful positive change through directly and indirectly supporting local businesses and organizations.

The credit union’s sponsorship of the Sudbury Credit Union Theatre at Sudbury Indie Cinema Co-Op, in the amount of $20,000, provides the cinema with the financial support to continue their work of strengthening the film eco-system in Sudbury, strengthening Downtown as Sudbury’s arts and culture hub, and supporting other local arts organizations and not-for-profits.

“As a community-minded, 100% local financial institution, guided by the principle of “people helping people”, Sudbury Credit Union is happy to continue our long-standing relationship with Sudbury Indie Cinema Co-Op by sponsoring the Sudbury Credit Union Theatre. We hope that our donation will support The Indie in their continued work as an arts hub in Northeastern Ontario and that the theatre will be enjoyed by our entire community!” Michael Moore, Chief Operations Officer, Sudbury Credit Union

“This is a very exciting moment for us at Sudbury Indie Cinema Co-op. Our lifelong Co-operative mentor is standing beside The Indie, not just coaching from the sidelines, but embracing us with significant financial support. We are proud to now have the Sudbury Credit Union Theatre as a symbol of the strength of co-operative ventures, and as a centrepiece of arts and culture in the City." Beth Mairs, Founding Executive Director, Sudbury Indie Cinema. 

Staff, Board and members of Sudbury Credit Union were in attendance for the event, which was also a celebration of International Credit Union Day – a day for credit unions around the world to celebrate the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements and raise awareness about the work that credit unions and other financial co-operatives are doing in their communities.
