Making money make a difference

A mission to Make Money Make a Difference. A vision to be Alberta’s neighbourhood credit union. A strong foundation of core values that drive everything we do:

WE THINK BIG, ACT LOCAL, TAKE CHARGE, and MAKE BANKING EASY.

Banking is about more than money − it’s a cornerstone of every vibrant community and about positively impacting the communities we live, work and thrive in. We’re your neighbours and partners. We’re built by people who wanted to strengthen their community.

Our members are people, not numbers. They find us in boardrooms, branch offices, volunteering around town, in coffee shops, at kitchen tables, and in farm fields. Everywhere they need us to be.

Wealth, wellness and a bright future are connected. We invest meaningfully in the potential and well-being of our people, and the goals and dreams of our members.

We have honest conversations, about real things, as real people, connecting the dots between financial aspirations and life.

When our members succeed - we succeed.
THAT’S THE CONNECT FIRST CREDIT UNION DIFFERENCE.

Divisions

First Calgary Logo

First Calgary Financial proudly serves Calgarians through 15 retail branches in the greater Calgary area. We were officially formed in 1987 through the amalgamation of 7 open-bond credit unions, however our local spirit and sense of community stretches back much further. The very first loan made by our founders in 1938 enabled their neighbour to buy a $50 washing machine.

Chinook Logo

Chinook Financial has 11 retail branches in communities across southern Alberta. We’ve grown from our modest beginnings in the agricultural industry to a leading financial institution across southern Alberta. Chinook Financial was originally incorporated in Brooks in 1941 when seven local men were convinced that a locally-owned financial institution was important to the area. Thirty-three people each gave one dollar, to start Brooks Credit Union and we began to grow.
