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 expresses its cooperative difference in several manners, such as:

  • the way it provides services
  • the member dividends it pays out to members
  • its contribution to the cooperative, economic and financial education of its members
  • the support it gives to community development and cooperative development
  • its democratic decision-making processes

The caisse understands the challenges and issues its members face. That's why it is proud to support, through its various organizations, initiatives and projects that not only shine a positive light on the community, but also help it grow socially and economically.

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.
