Connect First Credit Union

2015 marked a new beginning. Connect First Credit Union has started a journey to change the financial landscape in southern Alberta.

We believe that banking is about more than money — it’s about positively impacting the lives of those around us.

We believe in true partnerships, investing meaningfully in the potential and well-being of our people, and the goals and dreams of our members. We understand that wealth, wellness, and a bright future are connected.

We believe local banking is a cornerstone of every vibrant community. Staying true to our cooperative principles, we make genuine and impactful contributions to the financial success of our local communities.

As a credit union and financial cooperative, we’re owned and operated by members. Our member-owners are served by employee-owners and our credit union is governed by member-elected directors. Our interests are our members’ interests. No external shareholders, no conflicts of interest, just one principle: do what’s best by our members.

When you bank with us, you’re a person, not a number. You’ll have honest conversations, about real things, with real people. We’ll help you connect the dots between your financial aspirations and your life journey.

Because when you succeed — we succeed.

That’s the Connect First Credit Union difference.
