Involvement in the community

The caisse understands the challenges and issues its members face daily. Sensitive to their needs and concerns, the caisse is proactive and supports members in advancing their community and in initiatives aimed at improving individual and collective well-being.

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 helped organize and spread the word about the Concours d'histoire TCA - Fonds de solidarité FTQ.

The caisse supported the Rêvez l’Aluminium – Pédale vers ton avenir initiative which encourages secondary 3 students to excel and innovate in the development of a local primary resource, aluminium.
