The Caisse Desjardins de Montréal-Nord came as a result of the merger of the Caisse populaires Desjardins de Montréal-Nord and the Caisse populaire Saint-Camille de Montréal-Nord (founded in 1966), in 2010.
The Caisse populaire de Montréal-Nord, the first caisse in this municipality, was founded on February 27, 1937, under the leadership of Sylvio Paquin. Its name was changed to Caisse populaire Saint-Vital de Montréal-Nord on July 10, 1971.
In 1999, to provide for the needs of their members, the caisses populaires Saint-Vital de Montréal-Nord and Saint-Rémi de Montréal-Nord (founded in 1958 by Georges A. Harris) formed the Caisse populaire Desjardins de l'Ouest de Montréal-Nord. In 2001, the Caisse populaire de Saint-Vincent-Marie (founded in 1959 by Paul E. Grandmont) joined the Caisse populaire de l'Ouest de Montréal-Nord.
In 2004, the caisses continued to consolidate. The Caisse populaire Desjardins de l'Ouest de Montréal-Nord and the Caisse populaire Desjardins de la Rive de Montréal-Nord (founded in 1999) joined up to form the Caisse populaire Desjardins de Montréal-Nord. Prior to this, the Caisse populaire Desjardins de la Rive de Montréal-Nord had been created as a result of the merger of the Caisse populaire Sainte-Colette (founded in 1964 by Fernand Denault) and the Caisse populaire Sainte-Gertrude (founded in 1953 by Fernand Laurent).
