Windsor Family Credit Union is located in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. It is the seventh largest credit union in Ontario operating seven retail locations and serving 33,000 members including 30,000 personal members in 15,700 households, 1,760 businesses and 1,300 organizations. WFCU membership is open to anyone who lives and/or works in Ontario.

History[edit]

Through amalgamations and other arrangements, four Chrysler Canada credit unions, a General Motors credit union and eight other local credit unions were merged to create what is today WFCU.

Operating in Windsor and the surrounding area, WFCU began in 1941 with assets of less than $10,000 and now has $1.6 billion in Managed Assets and Member Service Totals of $2.4 billion.[citation needed]

Organization[edit]

Committed to the communities it serves[citation needed], WFCU is proud to display the Imagine Caring Company logo.[citation needed] Every year hundreds of local community organizations experience first-hand the benefits of several elements of WFCU's overall Community Investment Program, such as The Community 1 Free Chequing Account, Community Rooms, Scholarships, Donations, Sponsorships, Multi-Year Capital Giving and the Community Donations Fund.[citation needed]

WFCU stresses the importance of quality by maintaining an internal Five Star Quality Program. Reflective of offering a progressive work environment and culture supported by a strong focus on its employees and goals, WFCU has been repeatedly recognized as a Best Small and Medium Sized Employer and received multi-year ranking as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada.[citation needed] A Gord Smith Healthy Workplace Award recipient[citation needed], WFCU is committed to promoting the importance of health and well-being among its employees.[citation needed] However, in some of the branches, managers do not treat their employees right such as not giving them a break or lunch hours to their employees.

In 2008 WFCU received the naming rights to The WFCU Centre, the City of Windsor’s premier multi-purpose entertainment complex and official home of the Windsor Spitfires and Windsor Express. In 2013 WFCU received the naming rights to Windsor’s state of the art Aquatic Centre and Water Park. Under the same roof, the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre presented by WFCU can accommodate both 50 metre and 25 metre, as well as diving events, while Adventure Bay Family Water Park presented by WFCU houses a first class indoor water park.[citation needed]

WFCU is a member of the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario (DICO).[citation needed]
