Stan Scarr Scholarship



The Stan Scarr Scholarship application process is now open!

The annual scholarship program was established in November 2006 in recognition of the extraordinary level of commitment and dedication of Stanley R. Scarr, who retired from the Board of Directors of the Winnipeg Police Credit Union after having served 43 years and 9 months as a director, including 29 years as President.

The scholarship program is available to ALL WPCU members, including the direct family members of WPCU directors, management and staff, who meet the qualifications. A scholarship of $500 will be awarded to the two top applicants who are pursuing a degree or certification at a university or college in Canada.

WPCU is please to welcome our new Wealth Advisor


“A goal without a plan is just a wish”

– Antoine de Saint-Exupery

As a Wealth Advisor, my role is to help my clients plan for and protect their financial future, while achieving peace of mind in the present. I help my clients define their goals and then structure a plan that will act as a road map to achieve those goals. I truly believe in building trust and long-lasting relationships with clients. My goal is to help them understand and navigate the financial world.

For me, financial planning is more than just a career; it's a passion. I am committed to ongoing education in my chosen field to ensure I am always up-to-date on all the complex issues that take place in this exciting and dynamic industry.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss your financial goals and establish a strategy for your investment, tax and retirement planning.

 

Fake/Spoofing Website




WPCU was recently made aware of an increase in fake spoofed websites happening in Manitoba.

Fake/Spoofing Site
A fake or spoofed website, is a website that has been set up to look identical to your credit union website, the goal is to redirect your members to the fake spoofed website via smishing, phishing, or malicious online advertisements, once redirected the bad actors collect member's logon identification credentials.

What Members need to know
WPCU will not contact you via email unless this has been specifically requested by the member. We will not ask you to provide passwords via your email address, nor would we ask for your personal login info.

If you receive an email that is purporting to be from the credit union then you should immediately contact WPCU at 204-944-1033. DO NOT click the link or respond to the email.
