We use tools and resources to give our employees, members, and the wider community the knowledge and skills they need to achieve financial success. 

 





We are proud to offer 16 different financial literacy workshops to help increase financial knowledge and prepare for life's biggest events.

Our highly trained staff can administer 60 - 90 minute workshops to your school, business, or organization.

All workshops are offered in easy-to-understand language, without any ties to products and services, and with the sole goal of empowering individuals to make the right financial decisions.

We're happy to help out in our communities, and we encourage our employees to volunteer their time and expertise to charitable/non profit organizations. 

Access Credit Union is excited to be a part of your communities whenever possible. Our pancake trailer makes regular rounds throughout the year at various communities and we're always eager to participate in events, fundraisers, and festivals throughout Manitoba.
