It’s national coop week from October 17 to 23 and I would like to talk about a cooperative that has been part of my life since my parents opened my first bank account when I was 5 years old. I speak of course, of the leading financial cooperative in Canada Desjardins. We know the group mainly for its banking services to individuals and businesses, but they are also specialized in wealth management and insurance. They are investing in the future with their youth advisory committee and it is certainly essential for the sustainability of your cooperative. This is, in a way, the essence of the coop week: contributing to prosperity, social equity, and environmental justice in the community. You can check their campaign ‘Together when it matters most’ at desjardins.com/ca/co-opme/desjardins-difference/co-op-week/index.jsp . Have a great week and don’t forget that together we are stronger!
