We have great people - Not only are they some of the most professional and well-trained in the industry, but they are your friends and neighbors so they care about you, your dreams, and your community.
We are member-owned - because our members are also our owners, our members always come first. So walk in like you own the place because you actually do. Our Credit Union is owned by the people who bank with us.

A Little History Expand/Collapse
It was on December 14, 1944, that the Weyburn Savings and Credit Union Limited was granted its charter under provincial legislation. It was then that a group of people in Weyburn and district felt that a Credit Union was required to allow the opportunity for those who wished to pool their money to assist themselves and others in the community, thereby allowing local funds to work at 'home'. In actuality - we were peer-to-peer lending before P2P Lending was cool!
In the very beginning, the Credit Union offered only part–time service which was operated out of a shoe box in the Co–op Oil Department. The Credit Union relocated several times until finding our permanent location on Coteau Avenue. The original pre–cast facility with it's decorative member service area, atrium, and waterfall was renovated and freshened up in 2000 when the new two story building was constructed allowing for further business expansion.
Over the years, Weyburn Credit Union has amalgamated with credit unions in Colgate, Creelman and Lang. In 2004 when Yellow Grass lost their only financial institution, residents of the community worked with Weyburn Credit Union to establish a branch in their town.
Weyburn Credit Union began many trends, one of them being the patronage rebate and bonus program which remains popular today.
