FNBC is proud to be one of the leading investors across Canada publicly launched the Impact United movement

At First Nations Bank of Canada, we are proud to be one of the leading investors across Canada publicly launching a movement that seeks to mobilize billions in capital towards tackling our most pressing problems, from climate change to housing affordability to inequity. The initiative, known as Impact United, is a national peer-led movement and community of investors seeking to mobilize capital towards social, economic and environmental justice, comprised of individuals, families, institutions, faith-based organizations, foundations, and other asset owners. “In 1996, we founded First Nations Bank of Canada to bring both financial and social returns to Indigenous People and Communities who were underserved by existing financial services options. We combined capital from both Indigenous and Non-Indigenous investors who shared a vision of a healthier more prosperous Indigenous Canada with less disparity from the economic opportunity that a job and access to capital can bring. So we have really been engaged in impact investing for 25 years. We are pleased to partner with Impact United and to help advance a movement we have supported for a very long time.”

— Keith Martell, President and CEO, First Nations Bank of Canada and FNB Trust

Impact United aims to foster coordinated, informed and collective action among existing and prospective impact investors. In addition to facilitating educational programming and collective actions, Impact United will organize events for the community to connect on various subjects of interest.

First Nations Bank of Canada – 2020 Annual Report (including the Audited Financial Statements)

As we enter our 25th year, we celebrate our achievements and successes of building a financial institution that employs Indigenous People, remains committed to providing financial services in Indigenous communities, and that puts the success and development of Indigenous economies first.  Today, we are 83% Indigenous-owned, and Indigenous banking represents over 90% of our business. We have the largest market share of Indigenous financial services in the regions we serve and have grown to nearly $1 Billion in total assets.

The year 2020 presented extraordinary challenges for all of us.  We are most proud of our employees and their contributions to the success of FNBC during this challenging time.
