Cornerstone is happy to announce the successful recipients for $30,000 of Project Cornerstone funding! We received many great applications for projects within our communities, which made for a difficult final decision. Our successful recipients are as follows:

Odessa Community Hall - $15,000

The community hall provides a central hub for social gatherings and is an essential part of the survival, growth and prosperity of the Odessa community. Over the past 70 years the community hall has been invaluable to the community serving all ages from children to seniors, and for all types of events including recreational, community enhancement, and environmental activities. The community hall has been used for public meetings, fall suppers, weddings, fire fighter and first responder appreciation nights, wildlife suppers, sports banquets, provincial broomball cabarets, community fundraisers, dance recitals, funerals, and more.

The community has been involved in fundraising for the new hall, including planning numerous events, volunteer boards have been established to fundraise and complete planning for the construction, and the community will be heavily involved in the construction as the majority of the work will be completed by volunteers. Cornerstone’s funding will help them to reach their fundraising goal. Demolition of the old hall is February of 2022, Construction of the new hall is April 2022 with completion in June 2023.

Town of Kipling - Kipling Arena Upgrades - $15,000

Kipling Arena Upgrades will consist of replacing our current vestibule and entrance to increase space, create accessibility for all (including mobility challenged persons), and most importantly, repair a failing wall in the entrance to the dressing rooms area of the facility.

The Kipling Arena is a long standing facility supported by the residents of the Town of Kipling, R.M. of Kingsley #124 and R.M. of Hazelwood #95. Funding for a large portion of this project will be fundraised by these residents and the members of Kipling Minor Hockey, Kipling Curling Club, Kipling Senior Hockey Club and Recreational Hockey teams, and Kipling Skating Club. To date, these users of the facility have contributed to the concept drawings of this project thru a needs assessment focus group.

Cornerstone’s funding will allow the Kipling Arena to begin demolition of the existing vestibule and excavation of the faulty wall in May of 2022, with replacement and construction of the new vestibule in August 2022.

Congratulations again to our successful recipients and we can't wait to see these projects come to life! 

Project Cornerstone applications will open again in 2022, stay tuned! Learn more. 

For the seventeenth consecutive year, Canada’s credit unions rank above all financial institutions for outstanding customer service to their members.  In the 2021 Ipsos Financial Service Excellence Awards, Canada’s credit unions were recognized once again for their unmatched service to their members.

According to the annual 2021 Ipsos Financial Service Excellence Awards program, Canadians have ranked Canada’s credit unions first among all Canadian financial institutions in providing Customer Service Excellence for the 17th year in a row. Credit Unions were also the sole winner in Values My Business, Branch Service Excellence and Live Agent Telephone Banking Excellence.   

This year Canadian credit unions received five Ipsos Financial Service Excellence Awards. “For the 17th consecutive year Canadians have recognized credit unions for their excellence in customer service, this is an incredible achievement,” said Doug Jones, Chief Executive Officer at Cornerstone Credit Union. “As a credit union, we have always prioritized providing service excellence to our members and our communities. Specifically, this past year, through our response to the ongoing pandemic, we have been committed to helping our members succeed along their financial journey whether it be in person, online or remotely.”

Credit unions were sole winners in the following categories among all financial institutions: Customer Service Excellence, Values My Business, Branch Service Excellence and Live Agent Telephone Banking Excellence.  Credit Unions were tied for first place in the category of Online Banking Excellence.
