First Calgary Financial is a member-owned financial institution based out of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The organization was established in 1987 through the merger of seven open-bond credit unions, as well as two additional credit union purchases. The first member-owned credit union that would eventually become First Calgary Financial was founded in 1938.

With over $2.5 billion CAD in assets under administration and nearly 80,000 members (as of October 31, 2010), First Calgary Financial is the second-largest credit union in Alberta. In addition to its 16 retail banking branches, including a Business Solutions Centre, First Calgary Financial also offers 13 one2one Financial Consulting centres[clarification needed], a Commercial Banking group, a Dealer Services team, a locally based Contact Centre and Just Financial.[clarification needed]
