Coady Award for Community Involvement

The Coady Award celebrates the many ways that credit unions give back to their communities.

The award is named after Dr. Moses Coady, a pioneer and key founder in the national co-operative movement whose vision of independence and fairness shaped co-operatives and communities in Atlantic Canada.

Each year, the esteemed Coady Award honours the Atlantic credit union or caisse populaire that best exemplifies leadership, in the areas of co-operation, volunteerism, education and environmental sustainability.  The award (originally known as the Merit Award) has been presented annually since 1954, with the winner being selected by the Co-operative Social Responsibility Committee of Atlantic Central’s Board of Directors.
