The Caisse de la Culture is:
The vision to create a caisse de la Culture that would meet the distinctive needs of the Union des artistes arose from a conference of the UDA, which was led by Serge Turgeon at that time. The project crystallized and since the Caisse de l'Office national du film was willing to share its experience with the whole cultural community, the Caisse de la Culture was founded on May 2, 1994, with actor Yvon Thiboutôt as president.
Other organizations soon joined the Caisse, including the Quebec Musicians' Guild and the Union des écrivaines et écrivains québécois (UNEQ). Three years later, in 1997, the Caisse opened its doors to the academic sector, by including the Université du Québec à Montréal.
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 officers who sit on the Board of Directors and Board of Supervision.
The last Annual General Meeting of the Caisse de la Culture was held on April 16, 2011. The Caisse's balance sheet and financial results were presented to members. The Board of Directors and Board of Supervision both reported to the annual meeting.
Elections were also held at this meeting.
