Merg­ing of the Caisse Des­jardins de Stanstead and the Caisse Des­jardins du Lac-mem­phré­m­a­gog

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion Des­jardins Stanstead

The mem­bers of Caisse Des­jardins de Stanstead have voted at 97 % in fa­vor of the merg­ing project, which has been pre­sented to them dur­ing the Spe­cial Gen­eral Meet­ing held on Septem­ber 11.

The new Caisse Des­jardins du Lac-- Mem­phré­m­a­gog will of­fi­cially open on Jan­uary 1, 2013, fol­low­ing the

Au­torité des marchés fi­nanciers’ ap­proval. More than 4 400 mem­bers will join the 30 600 mem­bers of the cur­rent Caisse Des­jardins du Lac-Mem­phré­m­a­gog, which will man­age more than 711 mil­lion in as­sets and 1,3 bil­lion in vol­ume of busi­ness.

This project will pro­mote an invit­ing in­sti­tu­tion for the Hu­man Re­sources, which will be a com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage in the re­gion. More­over, the new Caisse will keep de­vel­op­ing pro­fes­sional skills in or­der to of­fer high qual­ity and spe­cial­ized fi­nan­cial ser­vices to its mem­bers.

This new fi­nan­cial co­op­er­a­tive will ac­tively par­tic­i­pate in the de­vel­op­ment of the community, es­pe­cially with the help of its Community de­vel­op­ment fund.

This de­ci­sion will have few im­pacts on the cur­rent Caisse Des­jardins de Stanstead’s mem­bers. If re­quired, ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing tech­ni­cal mod­i­fi­ca­tions will be sent to them in the up­com­ing months.

Be­ing con­vinced that this merg­ing is the an­swer to the fu­ture’s chal­lenges, it is with great pride that the ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers wel­come the mem­bers’ de­ci­sion.
