Community

Supporting the financial well-being of our members and our communities is at the heart of what we do.

Being a part of the community is fundamental to who we are – it's part of our fabric and our co-operative principles. All of this guides our community investment program. Through our program, we partner with non-profit and charitable organization to enhance the quality of life for everyone in our communities and make our province a better place.   Every year, up to 5 per cent of our pre-taxed profits are invested back into communities across Saskatchewan.

Your organization does not have to be a member to apply.   If you’re not a member organization, why not?  Last year we waived over $245,000 in business banking fees for non-profit and charitable organizations, empowering them to use that cost savings to deliver care to clients who depend on their services. We also have a no fee accounts to help you too. Being a member has its perks.

We have temporarily suspended accepting new sponsorship applications at this time, as the health and financial well-being of our members and our communities remains our focus.
