Waskada

Waskada, Manitoba is a quiet agricultural and oil town in southwestern Manitoba, 10km from the US border and 30km east of Saskatchewan.

Oil was first discovered in Waskada in the 1960s and the oil boom in the 1980s brought positive benefits for the community.

It attracted families to settle permanently in the community, which allowed the village’s high school to remain open.  Oilfield activity slowed down in the 1990s until new technology was developed and utilized in the area.

Sunrise Credit Union is proud to have served Waskada since June 5 1993, first as Virden Credit Union, then as Sunrise Credit Union after the October 1, 2008 merger.

On March 4, 2013, we opened the doors to our brand new facility with increased space and services for the benefit of our Waskada members.

Today, our Waskada Branch has close to 700 members and 6 employees.

We continue to support the community in a variety of ways.
