Toronto, ON, Sept. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Canadian Credit Union Association (CCUA) is excited to announce the launch of its "What is a Credit Union?" awareness program for 2023. This year, CCUA is taking a fresh approach by spotlighting the real-life impact of credit unions through an engaging video series.
The series aims to educate and inspire Canadians, particularly millennials and Gen Z, about the unique benefits of credit unions.
"When you bank with a credit union, you are a member and an owner, not just a number. Canadians have several financial institutions to choose from, but credit unions stand out as community-driven, member-focused financial institutions that prioritize the needs of their members," Dimah Khalili, CCUA Vice President of Communications, Marketing and Conferences, says.
The 2023 "What is a Credit Union?" campaign's storytelling videos will feature five diverse credit union members from across Canada, sharing their personal experiences and illustrating how credit unions have made a positive impact on their lives:
Visitors to Canada's Credit Unions' website can anticipate a dedicated section highlighting these member stories, providing an immersive and relatable way for Canadians to connect with the tangible benefits of credit union membership.
This year's campaign is more than just a launch; it's a celebration of member stories from coast to coast. It showcases how credit unions have served as trusted financial institutions and as pillars of support within local communities.
