WHY FIRST CREDIT UNION



First Credit Union is a community-owned financial institution where every member is a shareholder.

When your customers are your shareholders, it changes the way you run your business. We don’t ever have to choose between what’s best for our business, what’s best for our community, or what’s best for our members; they are one and the same. This is the cooperative advantage, and the foundation of our organization.

OUR PROUD HISTORY



First Credit Union is the oldest credit union in BC, incorporated in 1939. We are proud of our history; over 75 years ago we started in Powell River with a handful of members and less than $10 on deposit. Today, we serve over 10,000 members with more than $300 million in assets. First Credit Union now has five credit union branches, as well as five insurance offices that serve over 40,000 clients in Powell River, the Comox Valley, Bowen Island and Texada Island.

Over the past 75 years the way we do business has changed significantly, but what hasn’t changed is the personalized, hands-on manner in which we help our members and the community.

Become a member of First Credit Union and join a cooperative where strengthening the well-being of our members and making meaningful community impact is at the heart of what we do.
