Community Development Fund

The caisse has a help fund that serves to redistribute a portion of the cooperative's surplus earnings to the community. Following a proposal by the Board of Directors, members decide, during the Annual General Meeting, what portion of the surplus earnings will be paid into the help fund. With the help of their caisse, members can support causes that are important to them.

The members who sit on the Board of Directors manage the help fund. Every year, they report on the fund during the Annual General Meeting. At the last Annual General Meeting, in spring 2018, our members agreed to contribute an additional $400,000 in collective dividends to the Community Development Fund.

Need funding for your project?

Are you an unincorporated association, a non-profit organization or a coop with structural projects in mind? Our next call for projects is for you!

Call for projects

A call for projects is held twice a year, in the fall and spring.

Fill out and submit the online application by April 12, 2019. Proposals must be submitted to the caisse, online, along with the official application form. If you are unable to fill out the online form, printed applications are available at the service centre reception desk.

Projects will be considered by a committee, which will then submit its recommendation to the Board of Directors. The projects selected will be announced a few weeks after the call for projects ends.
