Helping members and communities thrive
We create real value for members through simple banking
As one of Canada’s leading credit unions, we deliver on this promise by providing personalized advice, exceptional day-to-day banking products and an ongoing commitment to innovative technology through four locally known and trusted divisions: Envision Financial, Valley First, Island Savings and Enderby & District Financial.
We believe financial service is best when it’s local
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, employees and local communities.
Our influence helps to better the lives of members and employees. We stand shoulder to shoulder with organizations that fuel local economies and create valuable jobs in our communities.
