For one to Love and accept themselves is to live at peace with the Creator and in harmony with all of creation. Love knows no bounds; we must accept it sincerely and give it freely.

As a co-operative, the people who use our services-our members are also owners and shareholders. Members have a say in how Me-Dian Credit Union operates. They also share in the profits of the credit union, usually in the form of lower rates on loans and higher rates on deposits than they could ordinarily get at any other financial institutions. Me-Dian Credit Union is responsive to the needs of members, no matter where they live or how they choose to access our services.

Over forty years ago, Me-Dian was founded as the Métis Credit Union of Manitoba; a "closed bond" credit union. Members of closed bond credit unions share a distinct association based on religion, profession, culture or some other criteria, and nearly every credit union in the province has been closed bond at one time or another.
The driving force behind the founding of the credit union was the Manitoba Métis Federation and its members, but the credit union later changed its name to the Me-Dian Credit Union of Manitoba when the board opened up the bond of association to include the entire Indigenous population - First Nations and Inuit along with Métis.
In 2009, Me-Dian Credit Union opened its doors even wider, welcoming those who are not of Indigenous heritage as associate members of the credit union. To this day, Me-Dian Credit Union serves all Manitobans in the spirit of reconciliation.
Our members come from all corners of Manitoba, urban and rural. We lead the credit union community with many innovative products and services that consider the diverse geographic demographics of our membership.
