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 Caisse also invests in the community through the Community Development Fund. Its involvement clearly shows that the community’s well-being is a top priority. The Caisse plays a major role in the community’s development by supporting many local and regional initiatives related to economic development, health and healthy lifestyles, cooperation, education, culture as well as humanitarian projects and community services.

In 2018, a total of $338,824 was invested in nearly 100 local and regional projects.

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.

Members of the Board of Directors (the Governance, Cooperation and Ethics) manage the help fund. Every year, they report on the fund during the Annual General Meeting.

In 2018, a total of $338,824 from the Community Development Fund was awarded to various organizations to support local projects.
