Local initiatives that spark change

Through the GoodSpark Fund, Desjardins has committed to investing 250 million dollars by 2024 in community projects that have the potential to shape our society.

Out of the hundreds of companies and organizations that we've supported since 2016, we nominated 9 from the youth, sustainable development and entrepreneurship categories. You voted for your favourites, and each finalist with the most votes in its category won 100,000 dollars to make its project a reality.

All in for youth

Projects that promote education and staying in school so young people can achieve their goals

All in for sustainable development

Environmental initiatives that promote responsible farming, the circular economy and innovation

All in for entrepreneurship

Projects that support entrepreneurs and young workers and foster employment and workforce training
