We believe that financial health is just one piece of the wellness puzzle and we’re here for you, your family, and your business, every step of the way. We are the trusted home for families and local businesses, building their financial dreams and prosperity within our communities.

The Prospera Story

From Humble Beginnings

In 1943, fourteen members founded Edelweiss Credit Union with assets totaling $58.50. Six years later, Fraser Valley Credit Union was established in Abbotsford with 14 members and $48 in assets. More than 50 years later, Edelweiss Credit Union and Fraser Valley Credit Union merged and in 2002, Prospera Credit Union was officially born. In January of 2020, Prospera and Westminster Savings Credit Union officially merged to become Prospera Credit Union. To learn more, visit

While a lot has changed since 1943, one thing hasn’t changed – our commitment to our members. Our members are at the heart of what we do every day as we strive to make a meaningful difference in their financial wellbeing.
