Through donations, sponsorships and contributions from the Community Development Fund, the caisse supports multiple local and regional initiatives in various sectors.
The Community Development Fund (CDF), also called community dividends, is made possible by the caisse's yearly surplus earnings. During the annual general meeting, members vote on the amount allocated to the CDF. This is a way for all caisse members to support the development of their community and important projects.
You can request financial support from the caisse at all times throughout the year. To apply under the regular program, complete the financial aid form (in French only, PDF, 866 KB) - This link will open in a new window..
