Let's get started opening you a Necessities Spend Account!

Experience a new, brighter way to bank for Albertans. Sign up is easy and will take less than 10 minutes.

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*

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.

Want to share your account with someone else who is new to connectFirst?
You will need to have the following details about the person handy during your application if you choose to do this:
  • First name
  • Last name
  • Date of birth
  • Email address
  • Mobile phone number
