Today's Caisse populaire Desjardins Mer et montagnes is the result of the merger of the Caisse populaire Desjardins Sainte-Madeleine in 1998, and Mont-Louis, Mont-Saint-Pierre and Murdochville, in 2001.
It was founded in 1924 by Alexis Bujold, prêtre.
Vallée was founded. Several community members felt the need to group together to help develop Grande-Vallée. So these citizens, headed by Alexis Bujold, the local priest, invited Abbé J.A. St-Laurent, a representative of the Union Régionale des caisses populaires de Gaspé, to come to Grande-Vallée. He arrived on October 21 and helped found the Caisse populaire de Saint-François-Xavier de la Grande-Vallée.
