About Us

About the Flin Flon Credit Union

Vision

To be the most trusted and valued financial service provider serving Northern Manitoba.

Mission

To develop strong relationships with our members through the provision of high quality products, convenient access and a continuous focus on the long term enrichment of the peoples and communities in Northern Manitoba.

Discover the Difference of Membership

Membership is ownership.  As a financial co-operative we are owned and directed by the membership for the benefit of the members and the communities in which they live.  We generate profits to ensure a healthly and stable organization and to develop new services and products to serve existing and future needs.  Excess profits beyond what is neccessary are returned to our members in the forms of surplus shares and dividends using the Member Equity Plan.

Along with the International Co-operative Principles the organization is directed by the values adopted by the locally elected Board of Directors.  Those values include:

1. To Be Member Focused and Directed.

2. To Be Fair, Trust-worthy and Accountable.

3. To Invest in People and Community.

4. To Up-hold Profit-Sharing and Shared Contribution.

5. To Be Innovative and Adaptive.

These values are used to guide our day to day decisions and differentiate us from our competitors.
