From humble beginnings more than 65 years ago, Valley First has grown into a strong, innovative and vibrant organization with a branch network spanning the Okanagan, Similkameen and Thompson valleys. On Jan. 1, 2010, Valley First completed a merger with Langley-based Envision Financial and became a division of First West Credit Union. Enderby & District Financial joined First West in 2013 and Island Savings in 2015.

As a division of First West, Valley First’s 16 branches and 11 insurance offices provide a comprehensive array of banking, insurance and investment advisory services to meet local members’ needs.

First West members in our region turn to us for trusted financial services and advice. We value all and welcome members and potential members as people, not just financial opportunities. Every day we strive to be a partner that enriches our members’ and clients’ lives.

For employees, as a division of First West, Valley First is a place to grow professionally and personally. Employees thrive because they can work locally, building close relationships with members and the communities where they live, work and play. They can also work big, by tapping into a broad network of expertise across the entire First West network.

Communities know Valley First as a committed partner and good neighbour. They recognize the valuable role we play in helping them prosper economically and socially. We give with our hearts, hands, minds and dollars, contributing everyday with volunteer hours, leadership expertise, community giving and sponsorships.
