Established in Duncan in 1951, the Island Savings division of First West Credit Union offers a complete range of products and services including banking, investment advice, insurance and lending for both personal and business members. By investing in local businesses and supporting community organizations, we're working to make the Islands an even better place to live, work and play.

With branches from Victoria to Nanaimo to the Gulf Islands, we are locally-based with a mission to contribute to the financial and economic well-being of our members, employees, and communities. Our members feel good about doing business with us, knowing that their money is being re-invested right here on the Islands.

Island Savings became a division of First West Credit Union on January 1, 2015 in order to better live out our cooperative principles and make the financial lives of Islanders even simpler. Along with First West’s other divisions—Envision Financial, Valley First, and Enderby & District Financial—we’re now able to put more money back into the pockets of our members each month through best-in-class products and more time spent having personal financial planning conversations.
