Our Story Continues...
...aS Canvas Credit Union!
Our roots run deep through Colorado history, and our dedication to helping our local communities has helped us transform from an eight-member credit union in 1938 to one of the leading financial institutions in our state today.
We are honored that Western Rockies Federal Credit Union Members voted to affirm the merger between our two credit unions. We are now one Canvas Family, and we are grateful for the opportunity to wholeheartedly serve our Members, Family, and Others on the Western Slope.
We look forward to getting to know you and your community more. We are thrilled to share a little about who we are, too.
Canvas Credit Union will strive to help individuals and families make better decisions and grow stronger financially. We will provide simple and relevant products and services at a consistently honest value. We Help You Afford Life.

- Use what we hear to create positive change
- Put the team first
- Brilliance matters, and it will not be elevated above kindness and generosity

Western Rockies Over The Years
Our original building was located on Rood Ave. The building shown above was our Ouray Avenue location, which was the second location for Mesa County Teachers Federal Credit Union.
In March of 1989, Mesa County Teacher's Federal Credit Union moved from our Rood Avenue building to 2302 North Ave, which is now our primary Grand Junction branch.
In July of 2004, Burning Mountain Credit Union joined us as the Western Rockies Federal Credit Union Rifle Branch. Today, our Rifle branch services all of Garfield, Eagle, and Pitkin Counties.
Western Rockies added our Fruita Branch in August of 2008. The Fruita Branch provided our members living in the western side of the valley a Western Rockies location closer to home!
80+ Years in the Community
As a financial cooperative, the best interests of our members and community have always been at the forefront of our business. From our humble beginnings, Western Rockies has become one of the largest local financial institutions to serve Colorado's Western Slope.
