In 2016, the Caisse allocated $35,795 in donations and sponsorships to various organizations in the following areas:

  • Economic development
  • Humanitarian assistance and community services
  • Culture
  • Education
  • Sports and healthy lifestyles

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.

The Caisse donated nearly $211,665 to some 20 organizations in various sectors of activity through the Community Development Fund. The following organizations received financial assistance in 2016:
