Following the May 7, 2018, Special General Meeting, we are happy to announce that the attending members of Caisse Desjardins des Grands boulevards de Laval and Caisse populaire de Saint-Claude voted unanimously in favour of the merger project presented.
The new Caisse Desjardins des Grands boulevards de Laval will become official on January 1, 2019. It will be made up of more than 47,000 members, 15 officers, with $1.5 billion in assets and $3.4 billion in business volume. The head office will be located at 3111, boulevard Saint-Martin Ouest, as agreed by the Merger Committee.
Sylvain Courcelles, currently general manager of Caisse des Grands boulevards de Laval, will be the general manager of the new organization. The current general manager of Caisse populaire de Saint-Claude, Simon Déry, will continue his career within Desjardins Group.
The merger will yield an even stronger institution that will establish itself as an indisputable financial leader in the community. Thanks to the increased number of strong, skilled and seasoned specialists available, the new caisse will also have greater agility in helping its members at every step of their financial life.
Convinced that this merger is the answer to future challenges, member officers of both caisses welcomed the members' decision and will work tirelessly in the coming months to prepare the caisse.
