Who we are| Meet the team | Policies, bylaws and financials

You already know who we are.

Maybe not by name, but through our shared experience as Albertans.

Our kids play hockey together. We watch the sun set behind the Rockies together. We support each others’ local businesses. We watch the price of oil rise and fall, and rise again, together. We push each others’ cars out of snowbanks.

connectFirst is a force for good. Through good times and bad, helping Albertans is our purpose, our history, our DNA. We’re a true credit union, born out of the collective legacies of four others that came before: First Calgary Financial, Chinook Financial, Mountain View Financial, Legacy Financial and SPARK the Energy Credit Union.

We're your full-service banking partner, our local history and integrity now shining through state-of-the-art digital banking solutions.

Our members belong here—we believe we all belong here.

And that working each day to make Albertans more secure and prosperous is a purpose worth fighting for.

We’re here for you. We’re here with you. We are you. And we pledge to support your financial health with expertise, know-how and passion.
