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.
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’s board of directors has implemented a community involvement policy.
The primary objective of the policy is to clarify the caisse’s community involvement so it can fulfill its economic and social mission.
To process applications in a fair and equitable manner, the caisse will now accept applications for financial support from the Community Development Fund twice a year, in April and October.
