History

Fusion Credit Union has grown and evolved out of a desire to meet the financial needs of our communities.

We’ve had many milestones in our brief history.

Today, we come forth as one strong, united team with the ability, skills and capacity to help our neighbours make the most of their financial situation, whatever it may be at the time.

About Vanguard Credit Union

Vanguard Credit Union Limited dates back to 1987 and originally operated branches in seven locations, namely Angusville, Birtle, Foxwarren, McAuley, Rossburn, Russell and St.Lazare. Vanguard Credit Union has always taken pride in being a strong and progressive credit union and evolved into a vibrant organization that served in excess of 12,500 members in 11 communities and built an asset base in excess of $356 million.

With headquarters in Brandon, Manitoba since 2007, Vanguard Credit Union has and will continue to return its profits to its members and communities through profit sharing, competitive pricing, employment and sponsorship. The Vanguard Team is thrilled to have joined forces with Catalyst Credit Union to create Fusion Credit Union and looks forward to future growth and innovation.
