Caisse Desjardins de Nicolet was founded on January 15, 1922. Over the years, the Caisse went through many changes which led it to merge with Caisse populaire de Ste-Monique in December 1998. In September 1999, the Caisse created the Desjardins Business Centre - Bécancour-Nicolet-Yamaska with the help of 7 other local caisses.
The Caisse then merged with Caisse populaire de La Baie in Decembre 2001, Caisse populaire des Deux-Rives in January 2012 and Caisse populaire du Bas-Saint-François in January 2013. This resulted in the creation of a single caisse for the entire Nicolet, Baie-du-Febvre, Grand-Saint-Esprit, La-Visitation-de-Yamaska, Sainte-Monique, Sainte-Perpétue, Saint-Elphège, Saint-Zéphirin-de-Courval and Bas-Saint-François area.
Caisse Desjardins de Nicolet has nearly 17,511 members and assets of nearly $499 million, and employs 54 employees.
