About the Bowen Branch
After years of struggling to attract financial institutions to Bowen Island, the former President of the Bowen Island Chamber of Commerce approached the CEO of First Credit Union after he saw the success of First Credit Union’s Texada Island Branch. As a result, a small start up branch was established; First Credit Union on Bowen Island opened its doors to the public on June 9, 2007, which was First Credit Union’s 68th anniversary.
First Credit Union Bowen Island Branch currently has seven staff members; in the winter of 2013 they celebrated their 1400th member. First Credit Union Bowen Island staff members look forward to hosting Movie Under the Stars each year, and take pride in the thousands of dollars given back to the Bowen Island community in the form of donations, sponsorships, scholarships, and profit-sharing dividends.
Our staff are dedicated to serving Bowen Island residents and supporting the community. Staff support local events like the upcoming Green Man Festival, and are involved with community organizations like Rotary. Branch manager, Kevin Manning, sits on West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce board and is working with them to put on the first annual Taste of Bowen on June 14th; this event will bring hundreds of people to Bowen businesses that day.
