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.

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.

The Community Development Fund, donations and sponsorships are important tools to leverage support for the socio-economic vitality of your community. The Fund exists thanks to members like you who, through a vote at the Annual General Meeting, agree to have a portion of their member dividends given back to the community.
