We believe financial service is best when it’s local

Our divisional brands reflect their former credit union names and have been part of their communities for generations. These trusted brands offer competitive financial products, pricing and advice made possible through our collective size and strength.

The power of local

Our local-market approach helps us provide service and advice that’s built on real relationships while meeting the needs of those who live and work in our communities.

Innovation for the future

We invest heavily in re-imagining the banking experience and creating new ways to serve families and businesses through innovation and technology.

Savings and efficiency

Our size and financial strength allow us to work more efficiently and save on operational costs. We benefit from a back-office of talented business professionals who support our divisional brands.

Stability and diversification

Our geographic reach—spanning Southern B.C. and reaching to Kitimat in the north—decreases economic risks and increases resiliency.

Becoming a federal credit union

Becoming federally regulated allows First West Credit Union to build a stronger and sustainable future for our members, team members, and local communities.

Transforming lives

Our influence helps to better the lives of members and team members. We stand shoulder to shoulder with organizations that fuel local economies and create valuable jobs in our communities.

Whether it’s our daily banking, expert advice or the latest easy-to-use technology, we’re focused on providing an unrivalled member experience that puts our members at the centre of everything we do.
