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.

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.

To optimize its involvement in the community, the Caisse has adopted a policy to guide the attribution and management of donations and sponsorships..

Associations, groups, institutions, organizations, individuals or promoters seeking financial support from the Caisse are invited to read the policy before applying for a donation or sponsorship.

All requests for assistance must be made using the application form. Please save the form on your computer hard drive and submit your completed form to us by email at the specified address.
