Best of Swift Current Innovation Credit Union isn’t just a name — it’s a blueprint

The Innovation Credit Union name is everywhere in southwest Saskatchewan. They are in many communities in the southwest, they are sponsors of numerous events and their brand adorns Swift Current’s largest and most- used sports facility. This year they were named the Best Bank/Credit Union

in the Prairie Post’s 2015 Best of Swift Current survey. “To be named the best financial institution in Swift Current means the world to us,” says Innovation CEO Dan Johnson. “Our mission is to provide world-class financial services wherever you are and whenever you need us; things like a free account with free Interac e-Transfers and our new mobile app with remote deposit capture, but it’s our team of employees who continuously strive to create exceptional service experiences for our members that make the difference. They educate our members on our new technology, helping them to bank anywhere, anytime.

These financial services are supported by a team of more than 370 enthusiastic and caring professionals who strive to make a positive difference in the lives and communities they touch.
