As a local credit union First Calgary Financial is committed to being a good community member that positively contributes to the social fabric of the Calgary Region. To nurture a strong, local, sustainable economy we look at our business decisions through social, economic and environmental lenses. For example, our innovative five-year strategic plan is guided by Social, Environmental and Economic Promises. It’s how we do business.
We pride ourselves on being a member-owned cooperative, where our decision making is controlled locally. In addition to our structure and business decision-making models, we further the development of community economic development (CED) initiatives in our city, by strategically investing in non-profit organizations who are working on improving Financial Literacy and CED.
