About the caisse

A financial cooperative with deep roots in the community, Caisse Desjardins du Cœur-de-l’Île has nearly 69,000 members and over $2 billion in assets. It was created by the merger of Caisse Desjardins De Lorimier-Villeray and Caisse populaire Desjardins Préfontaine-Hochelaga on January 1, 2017.


The mission of Caisse Desjardins du Cœur-de-l’Île is first and foremost to provide its members with quality financial services that meet the needs of all its clienteles.

As an institution that defines itself as listening to its members and partnering with the community, the Caisse concretely supports initiatives aimed at improving collective well-being and the autonomy of all. To ensure its continuity, the Caisse focuses on workforce renewal and promotes cooperative education.

Democratic life

As a member, you have the power to influence the decisions of your caisse by taking part in its democratic life.

Through the Annual General Meeting, your caisse calls on you to voice your opinion on various issues, including how the caisse's surplus earnings will be used. Your caisse also gives you the opportunity to exercise your right to vote to adopt or amend caisse by-laws and to elect the directors who will sit on the Board of Directors.

Each Caisse member is also a co-owner of the Caisse. Find out more about caisse operations.
