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.

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.

We stand out because of our proactive approach in educating people on how to manage their finances well. We organize lectures on financial issues to consider before retirement. They can be given for groups, in collaboration with your union executive.

We also hold lectures on responsible personal financial management and home buying.
