At Caisse Desjardins de Trois-Rivières, our cooperative difference has many facets. Whether it be our involvement in the community or the cooperative, economic and financial education we provide, our goal remains the same: member satisfaction.

Moreover, Caisse Desjardins de Trois-Rivières shares its surplus earnings by distributing individual and collective member dividends. The caisse also supports the community with these dividends.

Desjardins is proud to cooperate to the financial education of our youth and to local healthcare


Cooperative, economic and financial education

We provide cooperative, economic and financial education to help members. Our caisse implemented various initiatives to contribute to this goal.

To promote savings and cooperative education with student members, we support the development of school caisses in about 10 elementary schools in the Trois-Rivières area served by the caisse.

In addition, at the beginning of each year, the caisse invites future homeowners to an information session with experts who provide tips on the various aspects of buying a home. This event gives future homeowners the right tools to fulfill their dream of becoming a homeowner.

With respect to economic and financial education, the Asset Management team regularly organizes specialized lectures for our members. These lectures address various topics such as retirement, taxation, the economy, passing on family property, etc. These subjects and many others provide information to our members on the importance of effective asset management and the use of financial products and services tailored to their needs.

To meet the needs of all our members, the caisse also offers various economic information and education activities to residents of certain retirement homes.

Furthermore, Caisse Desjardins de Trois-Rivières youth advisors host various lectures on financial management for students at vocational centres and at Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. These lectures are an opportunity for students to have their personal finance questions answered.

In closing, we would like to inform you that we are very proud to contribute to community development on the strength of our cooperative difference. "Cooperating in building the future" is the slogan that inspires Caisse Desjardins de Trois-Rivières employees to make a difference every day.
