Credit Union Day Contest

This year marks 75 years of celebrating International Credit Union Day!  Each year, on the third Thursday of October, credit unions across the globe celebrate their achievements, hard work and the overall credit union movement.  The ultimate goal of Credit Union Day is to raise awareness about the tremendous work that credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more engaged.  Each credit union celebrates differently, and at Accent Credit Union, we welcome everyone to the branch to catch up and learn more about our products and service while enjoying a coffee and donut!
This year we invite students to submit an essay or colored picture for their respective grade category, as listed below.  There will be 4 categories; Kindergarten – Grade 3, Grade 4-6, Grade 7-9 and Grade 10-12.  There will be one grand prize winner for each category.  This contest is open to all students, you do not have to be a member to win.

Many Canadians have basic questions about saving. ​Where should they place their money? What are the possible benefits and risks of certain options?

Making the right decisions about your savings takes careful planning. We can provide you with the tools to establish a savings plan that suits your budget and financial goals.
