Community Involvement

NBTA Credit Union has been helping Members meet their financial goals since 1971. We help by empowering you to take control of your financial future with professional advice and an unbiased opinion.

“Human service really is the only reason for the existence of our Credit Unions.”

-Charles F. Eikel, Jr.

Aside from solid banking, we also help our community. Our community is unique in that it spans all corners of New Brunswick. With New Brunswick being a relatively small province, one quickly realizes that we’re all connected in some way. Whether it’s through friends, family, or co-workers, our community is your community and vice versa.

The following are some of the ways NBTA Credit Union helps our community in the form of community involvement.

Stan Cassidy Foundation Partnership / Cassidy’s Kids

 

NBTA Credit Union is proud to be a partner with the Stan Cassidy Foundation and Centre.  The Stan Cassidy Centre for Rehabilitation is a recognized North American leader in neurological rehabilitation. The centre provides bilingual care through inpatient, outpatient and outreach services. Clients of all ages from New Brunswick and PEI and complex paediatric clients from Nova Scotia benefit from the centre’s services. The Stan Cassidy Centre provides treatment for complex autism spectrum disorder, spinal cord injury, complex stroke, acquired brain injury, and various neurological diseases such as muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy and spina bifida.

NBTA Credit Union, together with our partner Concentra Financial, provided a cheque for $10,000 in 2012 to benefit the Stan Cassidy Centre with customized wheelchair seat-cushions for patients.  We have also partnered with local schools to form an initiative called “Cassidy’s Kids” that gives teachers a program to engage their students in unique fundraising initiatives for Stan Cassidy.  The results of this initiative have been phenomenal and have made a real difference at the Centre.  A prime example of the effect this program had in 2013 alone is found in this press release.
