​About EKC


​Together through life 

Since 1950, EKC has helped our communities grow by understanding the East Kootenay economy and our members’ passion for the mountain lifestyle. A full-service financial institution, with a financial planning and insurance division, we’re committed to making the communities we serve an even better place to live.

This commitment goes beyond the volunteer efforts of staff and the worthwhile endeavors we support in our communities. In fact, we take pride in demonstrating to our members that the same kind of caring and dedication that goes into what we do in the community also takes place at the branch level and is at the very heart of our relationship with the members we serve.
