Brief Overview of Organisation
It’s through unique local brands and a grassroots approach to service that First West Credit Union simplifies lives and helps members and communities thrive. With financial strength, comprehensive product selection and the extended branch network of a large financial institution, we change the way Canadians think about banking.
Doing the right thing is part of our DNA. As a values-driven cooperative created by and for ordinary British Columbians, First West is fueled by a core purpose to create positive change for our members, our communities, our employees and our planet. And while our purpose goes all the way back to the very beginning of our 70+ year story, it’s even more relevant and urgent today. We’re stepping forward with ever-increasing focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) leadership, as we strive to be a force for good in a time of extraordinary global challenge and opportunity.
First West is the third-largest credit union in British Columbia, Canada, with nearly $15.5 billion in total assets and assets under administration, more than 250,000 members and approximately 1,250 employees. Our 46 branches throughout the province under the Envision Financial, Valley First, Island Savings and Enderby & District Financial brands operate with the goal of creating a sustainable future in which we all thrive.
