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 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.

In 2017, members of Caisse Desjardins de la Pointe de la Gaspésie agreed to contribute $120,000 to the Community Development Fund.

The Caisse populaire de la Baie-de-Gaspé practices intercooperation whenever possible and, with a view to maximizing the scope of its efforts, regularly joins forces with the following caisses:

  • Caisse populaire Desjardins des Hauts-Phares
  • Caisse populaire Desjardins Mer et montagnes
  • and all caisses in the Gaspésie – Îles-de-la Madeleine region
