About Us
Caisse Financial Group is a bilingual financial co-operative where, as a member, you are also an owner who profits from our success.

This makes the Caisse Financial Group significantly different from traditional banking institutions. In addition to profit sharing with member-owners, Caisse Financial Group returns a portion of its profits to the communities it services by supporting local projects and activities. Since earnings remain in the area you live, your membership directly contributes to the economic development of your community.

Membership, which is open to all Manitobans, is your key to accessing the Caisse Financial Group full range of products and services, designed to meet your personal and business banking needs.

On September 1st, 2010, the four Manitoba Caisses and the Fédération des Caisses populaires du Manitoba merged together to form one Caisse : Caisse Financial Group.

In the spring of 2011, the Board of Directors, with the executive team of Caisse Financial Group, developped the Mission Statement & Core Values of the new Caisse.

Our History
Caisses have been serving Canadians since 1900, the year Alphonse Desjardins founded the first Caisse in Lévis, Québec. Caisses began as an alternative to banks because they are responsive to the needs of their communities and they guarantee members’ deposits.

Today, Caisse Financial Group occupies a unique place in the Canadian financial services industry. Here in Manitoba, the first Caisse was founded in Saint-Malo in 1937 and steady growth has ranked Caisse Financial Group as a premier financial institution in both urban and rural communities they serve.

There are 27 branches in Manitoba, controlling over 900 M $ in consolidated assets. 30,000 Manitobans are Caisse Financial Group members. At the core of this successful Caisse Financial Group are over 240 management, administrative support, tellers and member service personnel, each playing an instrumental role in its operations.
