connectFirst Credit Union
Our history as a credit union began in 1944 when four neighbours came together to fund a loan for a neighbour's washing machine. The first loan was done at their house in Bridgeland which is also where we opened our first branch. For nearly 80 years, we've celebrated some great milestones in Albertans' financial journeys - from supporting local business owners build their dreams to farmers feeding the nation and more. Today we have more than 40 branches across central and southern Alberta with a mission to make money make a difference and to do what’s right for every member.
Credit unions prioritize their members over profits and have been innovative over the years in offering new services before traditional banks.
