Virden

Virden Branch

Virden, Manitoba, is a bustling community of over 3,000 at the junction of Highway #1 and Highway #83 near the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border.

Originally a farming community, oil was discovered near Virden in 1951, and today the town is known as the “Oil Capital of Manitoba.” The town is home to a new recreation centre, hockey rinks, baseball diamonds, and a pool and the recently added the Virden Oil Capitals of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

The area has been settled by Europeans since the 1790s, when Fort Montagne a La Bosse was established by the Northwest Company, though the townsite today was founded in 1871 when the Canadian Pacific Railway reached Virden.

The Virden Credit Union was incorporated on June 26th, 1940 on application made by 15 members.  In 1971, Virden Credit Union merged with Melita Credit Union and opened a branch in Reston in 1977 and Waskada in 1993.

Today, our Virden Branch has over 5,100 members and 28 staff.
