Involvement in the community

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.

Call for projects for academic success and training

In 2021, our consultation with members and clients helped us identify priorities for investment. Based on the feedback we received, we're putting out a call for projects as part of our Community Development Fund program.

We've allocated a $100,000 budget for projects related to academic success and training. We're asking community organizations that support that idea to submit proposals for meaningful community projects.

Submit a project

To learn more and find out how to submit a project, read our call for projects for academic success and training (in French only, PDF, 661 KB) - This link will open in a new window.

The call for projects will run from May 1 to June 24, 2022.
