About Us

Stride Credit Union was founded January 1st, 2017 after a successful amalgamation between Austin Credit Union and Portage Credit Union. Intentions to amalgamate were announced at each credit union's annual general meeting in April of 2016. Members of each credit union then voted on the proposal to amalgamate in June, 2016; results were overwhelmingly in favour of the amalgamation with a fantastic positive response. 

On January 1st, 2020, Stride Credit Union officially amalgamated with Beautiful Plains Credit Union.  Members of each credit union voted overwhelmingly in favour of this proposal in August 2019.

Today, Stride Credit Union is a co-operative financial institution, operating in the best interests of our members and our communities. Because we are locally owned and operated by members and the communities in which we serve, our decision making is based on the best interest of our members. With each member having one SHARE and one VOTE and a Board of Directors elected from the membership, we can react to the wishes and needs of our members quickly and efficiently.

Stride Credit Union operates nine branches across eight communities in the Central Plains region; Austin, Gladstone, Glenella, MacGregor, Neepawa, Oakville, Plumas and Portage la Prairie. We offer a complete line of financial products and services for any and every kind of member, from personal (new and experienced) to business owners and the farming community. Our primary objective is to provide friendly, personalized, professional financial services and fair pricing to our members at all times.
