For 64 years, Island Savings has served Vancouver Island and the Southern Gulf Islands as a trusted financial and insurance services provider. 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 Salt Spring, Island Savings is the fastest-growing financial institution on Vancouver Island. 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 dealing with us, knowing that their money is constantly being re-invested here on the Islands.
On January 1, 2015 Island Savings became a division of First West Credit Union to better live out our cooperative principles and make the financial lives of Islanders even easier. Along with Envision Financial in the Fraser Valley, Valley First in the Okanagan Valley and Enderby and District Financial, we’re now able to put even more money back into the pockets of our members each month through best-in-class products and even more time spent having personal financial planning conversations.
