Hartney

Hartney, Manitoba, is a small community of 400 located in the southwestern corner of the province along the Souris River. Hartney is located 80 km south of Brandon on highway 21 in the Rural Municipality of Grassland. Founded in 1882, the town was named after the legendary James Hartney.

Hartney offers services to the surrounding agricultural area, which include an arena, a school, 9-hole golf course, and swimming pool.

The town has also been featured in a number of films, including The Lookout starring Jeff Daniels and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and the 2006 adaptation of Margaret Laurence’s The Stone Angel.

Hartney celebrates the annual Hartney Hopper Days every August, drawing softball teams from across southwestern Manitoba.

Sunrise Credit Union has been a part of the Hartney community since 1942, first operating as The Deleau Credit Union Society Ltd and then later as the Hartney Credit Union Society Ltd.  As the Credit Union continued to grow, it was decided to construct a new building, which opened for business in their new 2200 square foot premises on February 21st, 1998.

After numerous meetings in the fall of 2007 and early 2008 the Board decided it was in the best interests of our credit union to amalgamate with four other credit unions and the members voted to proceed. On October 1st, 2008, after 66 years of operation, Hartney Credit Union became part of a new entity, Sunrise Credit Union.

Today, our Hartney Branch has over 1,200 members and 7 staff.
