Impressive IC Savings Heritage Display now open

June 22, 2018 - The new IC Savings Heritage Display is now open at Humber River Hospital. Located along Main Street, between Rexall and the gift shop, this photo-rich exhibition speaks to the hospital’s rich history and the people —staff, volunteers, donors and patients— who are forever linked to its remarkable story.

Humber River Hospital is generously supported by our credit union, and the naming of this area is an acknowledgment of our support. In 2012, a significant commitment of $1 million was made on behalf of our members towards a facility that would amalgamate three legacy sites and become North America’s first fully digital hospital.

The fundraising effort was further supported by members of our executive team, namely Fausto Gaudio, and many prominent members of the community, who are also our members. Fausto Gadio, our president and CEO, for example, chaired the campaign cabinet for several years.

“Humber River Hospital will always be a special place in our community: it is where many of our children were born, and where our seniors receive the medical care they need. Co-operative banking means investing in a community and helping to make lasting and real differences. We are privileged to have participated in reinventing patient care.”
 
Opened in mid-October 2016 at Keele and Wilson streets, this 1.8 million square foot facility serves a culturally diverse community of more than 850,000 people in the northwest GTA. With more than 700 acute and critical care beds, it has more than 4,000 staff and physicians and more than 500 volunteers.





Bringing about a better world one action at a time


June 21, 2018 - AnaBela Taborda, branch manager at our Little Portugal location (pictured above left), was honoured with the Sir James Woods Award for Community Development from West Neighbourhood House (WNH), formerly St. Christopher House.
 
A United Way agency, WNH offers social services to the residents of west central Toronto, and presents this award each year to individuals who go above and beyond to make positive change in their community.

“This year’s recipient was an easy choice,” says Maureen Fair, the agency’s executive director (above right). “You [AnaBela] have made a positive impact on the whole city.” In her remarks, Ms. Fair acknowledged AnaBela’s tremendous contributions to community members in need, including youth in Toronto Youth Job Corps, the elderly and newly arrived Syrian refugees; the neighbourhoods of Little Portugal and Dundas West; and the Portuguese Canadian community.

Parabéns (Congratulations) AnaBela!




Great leaders inspire everyone around them

May 25, 2018 - Fausto Gaudio, president and chief executive officer of IC Savings, was honoured last night at the 16th annual Business Excellence Awards hosted by the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario (ICCO) at the Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex.

Mr. Gaudio received the night’s highest accolade, the Air Canada Business Excellence Award that recognized his inspired leadership, his remarkable achievements in business and his generous contributions to community.

The Calabrian proverb, “L’unione fa la forza” means “Strength lies in unity.” Mr. Gaudio recognized this early on his career. Some 20 years ago, he began speaking to individuals within the GTA’s Italian-Canadian community about the viability of a financial co-operative for Italian-Canadians. As the principal architect of IC Savings, he was successful in uniting them behind an extraordinary vision for a fair banking alternative and a deep conviction in community development. They were energized then as we are now by his belief in community banking. The result was the creation of a financial institution that consistently ranks as one of Ontario’s best-managed and most respected.
