A Financial Institution That Puts You First
Making Money Make A Difference To Our Members
At Connect First Credit Union, we spend our days helping our members achieve their financial aspirations through three trusted local brands - Chinook Financial, First Calgary Financial and Legacy Financial - and a community-focused approach to banking that’s true to our co-operative principles. You’re our member, not a number. We’re your neighbours, and your partner.
Over 75 years ago, we started from humble beginnings. Through the years, we’ve grown to become one of Alberta’s leading financial institutions through a desire to connect the dots between your dreams, your goals, your community and your financial wellness. We believe that banking is about more than money − it’s a cornerstone of every vibrant community and that our members should expect us to positively impact the financial success and viability of the communities that we call home.
We invest meaningfully in the potential and well-being of our employees, and what matters most to our members. We have honest conversations, about real things, as real people.
Because when our members succeed - we succeed.
THAT’S THE CONNECT FIRST CREDIT UNION DIFFERENCE.
?Did You Know
As a credit union, we’re different than a bank - and we like it that way. We’ll always put you first. As a member, you’re an owner. All members have an equal say in how we operate, earn dividends for common shares and investment shares, and have access to outstanding banking products, rates, and services. Get to know how credit unions put you before profits.
