Youth

Caisse Desjardins de Limoilou has a long tradition of involvement with local youth.

Over the past few years, the caisse has created various innovative projects to help teach its younger members about finances and support their personal or professional projects. For example, for 8 years now, the caisse youth scholarship program has been providing members ages 12 to 30 with a financial boost to help them pursue their ambitions.
