Founded in Steinbach, Manitoba in 1941, Steinbach Credit Union (SCU) is a Canadian financial institution that provides a range of products and services to over 100,000 consumer, business, and agricultural members. With more than $9 billion in assets, SCU is among the largest credit unions in Manitoba, and in the top 10 in Canada. SCU offers everything from day-to-day banking—both in branch and online—to wealth management and lending solutions.


SCU has three branches in Manitoba, located in Steinbach and Winnipeg. In addition to three full-service branches, SCU has a business lending centre (2445 Pembina Hwy), a member contact centre (St. Mary’s Rd.), as well as several stand-alone ATM locations in both Steinbach and Winnipeg.

SCU’s story began in 1941 when a group of friends and businessmen came together to discuss the idea of establishing a credit union for the Steinbach community.

No one could have imagined that what began as a list of transactions in a 5¢ scribbler stuffed into the crowded drawer of a bookkeeper’s office desk would grow to become one of the largest single branch credit unions in Canada—a fact that remained true until SCU opened its second branch in Winnipeg in 2003.
