Open an account and become a member

Open an account and become a member

From the moment you open an account at a caisse populaire, you become a member of a financial cooperative. This means that your caisse belongs to you and you have the right to vote at the caisse’s Annual General Meeting.

See the Monthly plans section to find the account and plan that are best for you.

Which of these best describes you?

I’m not a caisse member and want to open an account to become one. Make an appointment with an advisor at the caisse
I am a client of another financial institution and want to transfer my accounts to the caisse. Make an appointment with an advisor at the caisse to transfer your accounts, including preauthorized transactions, easily and without a fuss.
I’m already a member of a caisse and want to open a new account. To open a new account at a caisse with which you already do business, contact the caisse directly.

Documents required to become a member

2 pieces of valid ID (i.e., valid driver’s license issued in Canada, social insurance card, passport, birth certificate).

$10, i.e. the qualifying share, which is the amount required to become a member.
