Merger Results

Dear Members,

We are thrilled to share with you that after a successful member vote, the proposed merger of Entegra Credit Union and Assiniboine Credit Union will proceed with the support of both memberships. Of the 733 votes cast by Entegra members, 68.35% voted in support of the merger, while 84% of the 2702 votes cast by Assiniboine members supported the merger. The credit unions will officially come together on January 1, 2022, as a stronger, unified credit union, in pursuit of our shared purpose of providing financial services for the benefit of all.

While we were confident that members would see the alignment in organizational values and the benefit of a merger for our employees, members, and communities, this positive vote and the democratic process by which it was obtained confirm that you recognize the importance of this merger to our collective future.

Understandably, you will be eager to learn about the impact this merger will have on you and your branch, your products and services, and your trusted Entegra team. In the short term, there will be no impact on you. While we don’t have all the answers today, we can say with absolute certainty that our primary goal when integrating the credit unions is to minimize the impact on all members. Staff from both credit unions will be working on the planning and implementation process together to achieve a smooth conversion. We are undertaking this work with the best interests of our members, employees, and communities as the focus.

Thank you for your continued loyalty, your engagement and support, and for the trust and confidence you continue to place in your credit union. We look forward to continuing to provide you with products, services, and personalized advice to reach your financial goals.

We are getting stronger by coming together.

Sincerely,

Brent Turman
Chief Executive Officer
Entegra Credit Union

Have questions? We’ve got answers! Here’s some of the questions we’ve already been asked:

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will my funds remain guaranteed?
    Absolutely! As Entegra and Assiniboine are both based in Manitoba, all deposits and interest are 100% guaranteed by the Deposit Guarantee Corporation of Manitoba.
  • Where can I find out more about Entegra and Assiniboine?
    You can find more information about both Credit Unions at their respective websites: entegra.ca and acu.ca
  • Will I get an opportunity to vote?
    Yes! We believe in the co-operative principle of “one member, one vote”, so all members – including our online divisions – have an equal say in the decision to merge the credit unions.
  • What if I’m already a member of Outlook Financial?
    As the merger implementation moves ahead in 2022, we will work with our members who also have products with Outlook Financial to determine the best way to consolidate their accounts.
  • Will you be matching Outlook’s rates in advance of the merger?
    It will be business as usual for Implicity until January 1, 2022, regardless of the outcome of the member vote. Once the implementation process starts, we’ll be reviewing all existing products and services from both Implicity and Outlook to determine what options make the most sense for our members.

Online Banking Password Update

In March of 2019, member passwords changed from all numbers to stronger alphanumeric passwords. In addition to this change, the maximum amount of time that you can use a password without updating it is one year. This means that you will need to change your password in early March if you haven’t updated it within the last year.

What the Process Will Look Like

  1. When you log in to Online Banking, you will see a screen asking you to enter a new password.
  2. First, you will have to re-enter your current password.
  3. Then you will be asked to enter your new password.

Password Requirements

  • Must be 8 to 30 characters
  • Must contain at least one uppercase, one lowercase and one number.
  • You can also include the following optional special characters @ # $ - | !

Note: This password update is applicable whether you use Online Banking or the mobile app.

Why Wait?

Change your password today! Regularly changing your Online Banking password is an important measure that can help in protecting your accounts.
