Redeeming Capital régional et coopératif Desjardins (CRCD) shares

Redeeming Capital régional et coopératif Desjardins (CRCD) shares

Want to make a share redemption request? Here’s how it works, with some tax considerations to keep in mind.

Redemption after 7 years

You must hold your CRCD shares for at least 7 years. You can ask to redeem your shares after this mandatory holding period. Contact your caisse advisor to discuss what's best based on your investment profile and your plans.


  • You can request a total or partial redemption
  • Shares are not transferable to another person, by sale or otherwise
  • An administrative fee of $50 is payable on closing the account

Tax considerations

  • Tax credit cannot be claimed for the current tax year or any subsequent tax year on any new subscription or exchange.
  • Capital gains or losses may occur at redemption. Capital gains are taxable and must be reported in your tax return. A loss for tax purposes must be reduced by any tax credit already obtained.
  • A tax slip is issued so you can declare securities transactions for the tax year in which shares were redeemed.
