2019-2020 call for projects

Caisse Desjardins du Cœur-de-l'Île supports its community’s socio-economic development by donating to a Community Development Fund (CDF). Caisse members contribute to the fund by voting at the annual general meeting to redistribute a portion of the caisse’s surplus back into the community. Through this act of solidarity, members support initiatives that meet the needs of their community.

Caisse members were able to vote for their top causes in a vast survey held in 2018. The results are in: The environment and sustainable development are the causes our members care about most. In its ongoing effort to act in the interest of its members, the caisse has decided to hold a call for projects from November 29, 2019, to February 14, 2020.

Two projects were selected and will each receive $50,000. We're pleased to announce the winners:

  • The organization La Pépinière for its urban garden project, an integral part of the future Maison des projets, a space for socialization and gatherings. The goal of Maison des projets is to facilitate the implementation of initiatives that will improve community life in Hochelaga.
  • The Société de développement commercial de la Promenade Masson for its living wall project. In addition to the creation of a living wall, this project has an educational component in urban agriculture and workshops offered in partnership with local Rosemont organizations. Thanks to this wall, residents will be able to reclaim this public space.

So, in total, we've invested $100,000 directly into our community to address real concerns about the environment and sustainable development.

Congratulations to the recipients!

Your caisse is always here and ready to help its community!
