In 2016, we brought our mission to life, while delivering strong financial results. It was a year of firsts - we were the first financial institution in Alberta to introduce a responsible alternative to payday lending, the first to launch a gift program encouraging people to give in ways with positive long-term effects on savings and financial literacy skills, and we introduced a new community grant program to help invest more meaningfyully in our communities - Act Local.
A year of vision, momentum, and action. With record results, we positively impacted the communities we operate in while amalgamating the operations of two legacy credit unions to form Connect First Credit Union.
Embarking on a new journey. See the story of how two credit unions, with deep Alberta roots, became better for our members.
