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 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.

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

Caisse populaire de la Baie-de-Gaspé cooperates with local caisses whenever possible and, to maximize the scope of its efforts, regularly joins forces with Caisse populaire Desjardins Mer et montagnes and all caisses in the Gaspésie – Îles-de-la-Madeleine region.
