Update COVID-19 : March 27, 2020
We are committed to caring for the health and well-being of our members and employees as well as playing a constructive role in supporting health officials by following their recommendations. We also recognize that now more than ever, our members turn to us for advice and support. We are here to help.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected our ability to properly staff all our locations. For the safety of our members and employees, and in an effort to help flatten the curve, we have suspended public access to select branch locations (see below). Beginning March 30, we will be limiting public access to our open branches to Monday to Friday, 10am to 3pm.
All of our branches remain available to take calls Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
These changes allow us additional time to sanitize our branches and manage our resources in order to ensure all our members have access to critical financial services. Our members continue to have access to our services through the following channels:

Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our members and employees and we are taking added precautions to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 outbreak. Our branches and corporate office have incorporated added precautionary measures including enhanced hygiene protocols and changes to corporate policies. We will continue to follow the guidance of local and international health authorities to make informed decisions.
Following governmental guidelines, we have increased the frequency of cleaning, with daily disinfection of our branches and ATMs, and other high-traffic areas. We will continue to improve as needed. We have increased our use of virtual meeting technology and cancelled all non-essential meetings. We are restricting all employee business travel and monitoring all personal travel. We are practicing social distancing by avoiding direct contact and promoting a two-meter buffer zone. We are also encouraging our employees to work from home whenever possible. We are requiring employees to stay home if they are unwell or with symptoms.
Some Branches have closed temporarily to the public, please view the table above for up to date information.
To protect yourself and others, please refrain from visiting a Caisse Branch if you are feeling unwell. We ask that you only enter a Caisse branch if you cannot conduct your transaction via another one of our channels.
When entering a branch you will be greeted by a Caisse employee that will ask screening questions to assess your needs and better direct you. We ask that you maintain a two-meter distance from others at all times in the branch.
We have increased cleaning and disinfecting frequently used surfaces such as desks and counters and frequently touched objects such as pens, computers, doorknobs, phones, light switches and surfaces using a recommended disinfectant spray.
Will COVID-19 affect member services or other services that Caisse provides to me or my business?
At this time, we are not experiencing disruptions to member services. However, please contact our advisors before going to one of our branches so that we can choose the best service method while following social distancing recommendations. And, of course, we encourage our members to use our online services which are safe, easy and available 24/7.
