About Sunova Credit Union:

Sunova Credit Union’s roots originated in the 1940s when a group of Manitoba farmers listened to the Farm Radio Forum talk about concept of a credit union. Soon the group formed the Grassmere Tecumseh Credit Union based on the philosophy of “people helping people”. In 1955, the credit union was allowed to expand into a larger area, and 11 members signed a new charter to form Stonewall Credit Union. It had just $82 in assets, but has since grown into one of rural Manitoba’s most successful credit unions. In 1974, the credit union was renamed as South Interlake Credit Union (SICU).

In 2008, SICU was rebranded to the credit union you know today: Sunova, a vibrant, friendly full-service financial institution dedicated to providing outstanding member service.
