Filene partners with CU Central of Canada
MADISON, Wis. (2/15/11)--The Filene Research Institute and Credit Union Central of Canada have announced a formal partnership to extend their research. The new partnership, which becomes official in April, was created to help both organizations keep pace with market, regulatory and consumer change and provide information to credit unions in Canada and the U.S. Filene and Canadian Central are building on a relationship which began in 2009 and includes credit union access to Filene research reports and Canadian credit union system participants on Filene’s i3 innovation team and its Research Council. Through the partnership the organizations will work together and share costs for projects that are relevant to North American credit unions. All Canadian credit unions affiliated with Canadian Central will have access to Filene’s research library and innovation projects. As part of the agreement, Filene and Canadian Central will produce up to four joint research projects each year. The two organizations will host joint academic gatherings and appoint a Canadian member to the Filene Research Fellows panel. The Canadian credit union system will continue to participate on Filene’s i3 innovation team and on its research council. Filene and Canadian Central recently collaborated to share the findings of the study, “Credit Union Social Responsibility: A Sustainability Roadmap across Canada.” Both organizations said they are interested in credit union governance, public policy and innovation. The organizations will sponsor staff exchanges to further develop research and innovation sharing.
