A commitment to small town Saskatchewan has led to extensive renovations at Innovation Credit Union’s Wilkie Advice Centre.

A grand re-opening of the facility was held yesterday, April 27 to celebrate the renovations which include an updated interior, additional office space, and the addition of an 'innovation room' which gives members the services of a bigger branch without leaving the community.

The Credit Union’s Regional Vice-President for North Central John Jangula explained in an interview the room uses technology to connect members with the services they need.

“If you wanted to see a financial planner and that person couldn’t be there when you needed to see them, you can walk in and have face to face Skype conversations with that planner and get your issues answered without having to leave Wilkie,” Jangula said.

The facility had not been renovated in approximately 20 years and was in need of not only aesthetic upgrades but also upgrades to keep up with advances in the technology and programs now offered by the Credit Union.

Innovation has 22 locations in Southwest and North Central Saskatchewan and services 49,000 members including individuals, businesses and organizations across the province.
