Here to Create Prosperity

Fusion is the result of the official amalgamation of Catalyst and Vanguard Credit Unions on April 1, 2018, which created one full-service financial institution serving almost 30,000 members across 18 branches in South Western Manitoba.

“As a member based organization, we have carefully listened to our members and our staff as we started this evolution,” says Ron Hedley, CEO. “We are in the process of creating a credit union that works to meet the needs of each member and the needs of our communities based on what we have heard.”

With assets under administration exceeding $1.06 billion, Fusion has the capacity, the commitment and the unique opportunity to support prosperity and growth in our home communities like no one else can.

“We believe the future of our communities lies in our shared ability to be creative, to aspire to new things, and to create and embrace new economic opportunities”, adds Hedley. “We can do all that, and still remain grounded in values that we all share.”

As part of our redefinition, Fusion will increase our focus on financial literacy and wealth management. “It’s clear that people who are financially confident have more freedom to live their lives on their own terms. That’s what we want for ourselves, our families and our members.”

To do this, Fusion will expand their programs that actively support members in achieving and increasing their financial confidence through financial literacy programs in schools, in branches, and online, through fraud prevention and financial safety information; and by providing a full line of consultation and wealth management services to help our members make informed decisions about the best course of action for today and into the future.

“It’s significant that this, our first post on the new website, is about financial literacy,” adds Hedley. “We want to use this forum and others to advance the success of our members. As time goes on, we look forward to building this into a relevant, lasting resource that helps people make sound financial decisions throughout their lives.”
