About the caisse

Each caisse member is also a co-owner of the caisse. Find out more about caisse operations.

Founded on deep historic, social and community roots, the mission of Caisse populaire Desjardins Canadienne Italienne is to provide the Italian community with its own financial institution, while ensuring its long-term success. Aiming for maximum profitability, it must provide considerate, competitive and quality human advisory services. Caisse populaire Desjardins Canadienne Italienne must serve and do business with its members with an Italian touch, in members' own language, while promoting the on-going economic, cultural and social well-being of the community.

Through the Annual General Meeting, your caisse calls on you. It gives you the opportunity to participate in a variety of consultations such as how surplus earnings should be allocated. It also gives you the opportunity to exercise your right to vote to adopt or amend caisse by-laws and elect the directors who sit on the Board of Directors.

The last Annual General Meeting of the Caisse populaire Canadienne Italienne was held on April 15, 2014, and was attended by 200 people. The caisse's balance sheet and financial results were presented to members. The Board of Directors reported to the annual meeting.
