Involvement in the community

The caisse understands the challenges and issues facing its members. With their support, it can provide its fellow citizens with valuable help regarding initiatives aimed at common betterment and the advancement of society.

Your caisse supports local and regional community projects associated with economic development, health, the environment, education, art, culture and sports.

It is proud to support our community's projects.

The Community Development Fund serves to redistribute a portion of the cooperative's surplus earnings to the community. Following a proposal by the board of directors, during the annual general meeting, members decide what portion of the surplus earnings will be paid into the community fund. Through their caisse, members can support causes that are important to them.

Members who sit on the board of directors manage the community fund. Every year, they report on the fund at the annual general meeting.

As a financial institution with deep roots in its community, the Caisse Desjardins de l'Ouest de Portneuf cannot remain indifferent to the economic and social difficulties facing local residents.

In our opinion, the Caisse's development and continuity are intimately linked to the community's economic and social health.

The Caisse Desjardins de l'Ouest de Portneuf is particularly concerned about the following issues:

  • the exodus of our young people,

  • the lack of investment in the community,
  • the delay in the development of the tourism industry
