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 initiatives in various areas.

The commitment of the caisse and its directors to society and to the community is concrete evidence of its cooperative aspect. We're proud to announce that, in 2018, the caisse supported social and community events and organizations with $20,000 in contributions.

The Community Development Fund (CDF) is made up of surplus earnings generated by the caisse that can be paid to members in the form of individual dividends. At the Annual General Meeting, members can elect to allocate a portion of the surplus earnings to the CDF, taking into account the provisions of the Act respecting financial services cooperatives, CDF standards, internal by-laws and recommendations from the caisse board of directors.

The CDF's mission is to support strategic community initiatives aimed at socioeconomic development and vitality, the environment, cooperative and financial education and any other priority area for the community.

In 2018, the caisse contributed $23,166 to strategic projects on the Université Laval campus through the CDF.

The caisse welcomes on an ongoing basis requests for funding from the CDF that meet its evaluation criteria, namely project relevance, outreach, viability and effectiveness, as well as compliance with the sustainable development model.
