At connectFirst, our promise to every Albertan is a conversation. We’ll take the time to learn your story, not just your numbers.

Whether it's over the phone, on a video call, or in person, at one of our 42 branches across Southern Alberta, we want to do more than meet, we want to connect.

Sign up is easy and will take less than 10 minutes, but before you get started, make sure you:

    • Are 18 years of age or older
    • Are a resident of Alberta
    • Have valid government-issued photo ID
    • Are using this account for personal use, and not a third party*

You will need to have the following details about the person handy during your application if you choose to do this:
  • First name

  • Mobile phone number

It pays to be a member.

We share our profits with our members. Banks don't. When you become a member, $1 will be set aside from your initial deposit as a common share but you will have the option to invest up to $200,000 into your common share account at anytime so that you can earn more. This is just one of the many perks of membership at connectFirst.

Still have questions?

No problem! Simply book an appointment online or contact our Member Connection Centre at 1.866.923.4778 and let’s have a conversation.
