2022 Holiday Edition

This has been a year of tentative, yet hopeful recovery. As we slowly emerge from three years of uncertainty, we must reflect on the past year, our achievements, our challenges, and envision what's to come in 2023.

The theme for this time of the year is 'gratitude.' Although this year has had its share of ups and downs, we have much to be grateful for.

We are grateful for the opportunities we had this year to physically come together for the first time since the start of the pandemic. We celebrated multiple member events such as Member Appreciation Day, Credit Union Day and over a dozen community events such as the Lloyd Ex Fair parade, National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, Pride march, and the Lloydminster Region Health Foundation's ‘Dodge the Stigma’ dodgeball tournament.

And next year, we celebrate 80 years of Synergy Credit Union in Saskatchewan. In 2023 we will do even more for our members and communities, especially our local schools and Indigenous communities.

On January 1st, we will welcome a new member to the Synergy family. New Community Credit Union is a member-owned financial institution in Saskatoon with over $175 million in assets under administration, serving 2,200 members. With this amalgamation, Synergy will expand its footprint in Saskatchewan.

We will be launching a new digital banking tool in 2023, as the federal government moves towards making open banking more available to Canadians, to optimize Synergy’s position. Please look forward to that.

On behalf of Synergy Credit Union, I would like to extend its warmest holiday wishes to you and your family. Thank you for your patronage and support. Have a happy holiday and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Take care,

Glenn Stang (CEO, Synergy Credit Union)


p.s. We would love to see how to see how you spent your holidays, share your pictures with us!

Also, let us know how we did in 2022 and what you would like us to improve, we would love to hear from you!

Member Relief Program

We have been here through good times and difficult times with our members for nearly 80 years.

We’re proud of the resiliency of our members and want to ensure they know we are here for them.

Whether it was the oil crash in the 1980s or the recessions in 2008, we have learned many things: one of which is there isn’t a cookie-cutter approach that we can take to meet our members’ diverse needs.

Recently, sustained hot weather and lack of precipitation is expected to have an impact on the bottom line of some of our agriculture members. We know this can be stressful as crops and pastureland in some areas are struggling.

We want you to know Synergy offers flexible options, including mortgage and loan payment relief, combined with tailored solutions in these circumstances.

Please contact us to discuss options, to ask us any questions, or to help you determine what may be best for you. You can give us a call at 1-866-825-3301 or 1-306-825-3301.

We're here to help.
