On April 8, 2021, Caisse Desjardins de Témiscamingue held its annual general meeting online. It was an opportunity for members to go over the caisse's financial results for the previous year. They then had 4 days to vote on the plan for sharing surplus earnings.
At the close of the 2020 fiscal year, the caisse posted surplus earnings of $4.4 million, an increase of 1.4% from 2019. Its business volume increased by 11.5% to $1.27 billion during the same period. Its surplus earnings before member dividends reached $8.7 million, an increase of 42.3% during the last year.
Thanks to its strong performance, the caisse gave back $228,000 to its members and the community: $26,000 in sponsorships and donations and $202,000 through its Community Development Fund. In 2020, the caisse donated $15,000 to the holiday food drive in Témiscamingue, $5,250 to the Fondation Philippe-Chabot's Ilumminons l'univers de nos personnes hébergées campaign and $18,200 to the Petit terre project in Lorrainville.
From April 9 to 12, 2021, members were able to have their say by voting online on the plan for sharing surplus earnings put forward by the board of directors. The plan was approved and $1.1 million will be returned to caisse members and the community in member and community dividends.
“The caisse will be able to support important community initiatives. I would like to thank our members whose trust has allowed us to improve the economic and social well-being of people and communities,” said caisse chair Denis Nolet.
