At the heart of community development

Committed to sustainable community development

Then and now, Desjardins Group's focus has always been to enrich the lives of people and communities through the caisses' local actions.

Caisses contribute to local vitality by:

  • financing projects for individual or group entrepreneurs
  • providing financial support to projects and organizations through the Community Development Funds
  • making donations and sponsorships
  • promoting inclusion and financial education
  • engaging in conversations on local issues
  • providing a presence in areas where population density is low

With strong roots in the community, the caisses are able to help members with their major life projects. Through participatory governance, members can allot part of their dividends to the creation of a Community Development Fund and participate in determining its orientations and selection criteria. The caisses distribute $30 to $40 million to help us achieve our collective dreams.

Desjardins Group strongly believes in people's capacity to manage their personal finances soundly and carry out their entrepreneurial projects successfully. This is why it is the only financial institution in Quebec to offer solidarity-based products.

These financing products come with close guidance provided by local organizations.
