Innovation Credit Union has once again earned a spot amongst the best employers in Saskatchewan.


Canada’s Top 100 Employers organized the 11th Annual Saskatchewan’s Top Employers competition,
which recognizes businesses in the province that offer exceptional places to work.
One of the key reasons Innovation was chosen was for its long-term investment in employees through
tuition subsidies for courses at outside institutions and for professional accreditation. “We invest up to
$1 million a year in the long-term professional development of our employees,” says Amanda Thoen,
Talent Development Specialist with Innovation Credit Union. “That’s a very hefty budget and
demonstrates our dedication to training.”
The competition also recognized Innovation’s role in its communities. Innovation supported
approximately 3,000 charitable and community organizations in 2016. Staff are also encouraged to
volunteer in their communities and can receive a full paid day off for their volunteer efforts.
“I can’t say enough about our staff members and their contributions to our communities,” says
Innovation Credit Union CEO Dan Johnson. “They are truly passionate about making our towns and
cities a better place to live. It’s hard to find an organization or local event that our employees aren’t a
part of. I’m incredibly proud of this team.”
Innovation Credit Union was founded in 2007 with 22 advice centres throughout the province
including Swift Current and North Battleford. It is provincially regulated, with the hopes of becoming
federally regulated by 2020.
