About the caisse

A financial cooperative with deep roots in the community, Caisse Desjardins de Nicolet has 17,511 members. Each caisse member is also a co-owner of the caisse.

Find out more about caisse operations.

  • As a cooperative institution, the Caisse prioritizes meeting all the needs of its members, since the Caisse property, power and surplus earnings sharing belong to the members.
  • As a community leader and partner, the Caisse promotes action that improves social and economic well-being, quality of life and real economic responsibility for the community.

To fulfill its mission, the Caisse educates its members, officers and employees about democracy, solidarity and individual and collective responsibility.

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.

It also employs approximately 30 people at the Desjardins Business Centre - Bécancour-Nicolet-Yamaska, in which all Desjardins regional experts meet the needs of businesses.

In addition, 14 elected directors by members and member representatives and one intern director make up the Board of Directors.
