In Our Community

Since 1950, East Kootenay Community Credit Union (EKC) has helped our communities grow by understanding our East Kootenay economy and our passion for lifestyle. We are a financial institution, with a financial planning and insurance division, committed to making the communities we serve better places to live.

At EKC we understand that a growing community is about more than financial transactions and balance sheets. It involves all of us coming together to make a collective impact for the East Kootenay. EKC invests in our communities through a number of great programs and initiatives, including sponsorships, donations and in-kind contributions.

Opportunities that help grow prosperity and focus on economic development, education, leadership and development, children and families, healthy living, recreation and improving human welfare are strong fits for our program.


EKC supports numerous community groups. Our staff and Board of Directors are active in our communities and give countless hours and donations to make our East Kootenay communities such a great place.
