Involvement in the community

The caisse understands the challenges its members face on a daily basis. Sensitive to their needs and concerns, the caisse proactively supports them in their quest for professional advancement and individual and collective well-being.

Your caisse supports various key initiatives for the community. By choosing to do business with us, you're contributing to sustainable development in the arts community. Members have made it possible for the caisse to create a Community Development Fund (CDF). Since 2008, the CDF has provide the cultural community close to $2.4 million for 450 key initiatives. A committee made up of board members assesses applications submitted to the CDF.

The caisse encourages you to support the Fondation des artistes and its partners whose mission is to obtain one-time financial assistance for artists living in emergency or crisis situations. The amounts disbursed are used to subsidize the basic needs of the artists and their families, such as food, lodging, school-related fees for kids and medical fees.
