Coady Award

Valley Credit Union Awarded the Esteemed Coady Award for the Year 2020

Valley Credit Union is proud to share that we were chosen as the 2020 recipient of the prestigious Coady Award for Community Involvement. The esteemed Coady Award honours the credit union or caisse populaire in Atlantic Canada that best exemplifies leadership, support, and involvement in its community. The award (originally known as the Merit Award) has been presented annually since 1954, with the winner being selected by the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee of Atlantic Central’s Board.

The Coady Award is named after Dr. Moses Coady, a pioneer and key founder in the national co-operative movement who encouraged his followers to strive for a meaningful economic democracy that would permit the higher social activities of mankind. Credit unions reflect the values of Moses Coady by demonstrating their care for, and support of their local communities through co-operative economic development, education, philanthropy, and involvement.
