Community first.

A big part of who we are as a credit union is giving back to our community and making it a better place.

We feel responsible for the wellbeing of the place we call home and the people we live next to.

To us, your wellbeing goes beyond physical, mental or financial factors. It's about OUR wellbeing, together, as Albertans.


Supporting our local community is important because, as Albertans, we’re all a part of something greater than ourselves. Our community gives us a deeper sense of belonging.

Investing in our community is an investment in ourselves. Why? Because we’re your neighbours,
our kids go to the same school, we sit alongside you on the bleachers. We share a community -
let’s build on the things that make it great.

Our NeighbourGood grant program is designed to support the communities we live, work, and play in.

Each of our branches across Alberta have local budgets to provide sponsorships or donations between $100 and $2000 to support local non-profits, charities, societies, cooperatives or social-enterprises.

Whether it is a new community program or public event, our teams want to hear about it!
