Vision

Caisse Desjardins de Terrebonne inspires trust amid the community by meeting the changing needs of its members, by getting involved in the community, by modeling productive, profitable and sustainable business operations, and by depending on competent employees, managers and directors.

Values that arise from our vision:

  • Using money for human development
  • Getting involved personally
  • Using democratic processes
  • Being honest and conscientious
  • Being one with the community

Caisse Desjardins de Terrebonne first opened in the basement of the Saint-Louis de France parish parsonage on April 30, 1950. It was founded by the parish priest, Louis-Joseph Gervais, and a group of parishioners.

Despite its humble beginnings with 70 members and total deposits of $3,190, the caisse had a bright future ahead of it. Over the years, the caisse came to play an ever-greater role in the community. Today, more than 70 years later, the caisse has 40,000 members and $3.4 billion in business volume.
