About Us

First Credit Union is a community owned financial institution with branches in Powell River, Texada, Cumberland, Comox Valley and Bowen Island.  We are the oldest Credit Union in BC, incorporated in 1939. 

Our Vision

To build financially healthy communities.
As a financial institution owned by our members and deeply rooted in our communities we have a responsibility to make sure that all of our activities ultimately build thriving, vibrant communities.

Our Purpose

To empower through knowledge.
Increasing financial literacy is core to our existence. A favorite example of this is Ruth Allan - known fondly as the 'Credit Union Lady' - who was the beloved administrator of the First Credit Union (then Powell River Credit Union) School Savings Program from 1957 to 1980. She is still credited by many of our members as the person who taught them the value of saving. Ruth's work is the inspiration for our purpose.
