Fort-Coulonge - An Extraordinary General Meeting (AGE) will be held tonight for members of the Caisse Desjardins des Rivières de Pontiac concerning the capital project. The Director General of the Caisse, Stéphane Labine:

The capital project from the Caisse des Rivières de Pontiac caused a lot of concern in April for some residents about the Caisse possibly moving. Following the concerns raised in April, CHIP 101.9 met with Labine, where he described the various options that were being evaluated by the Caisse such as the renovation of the current building, or the repositioning of the point of service in another place; becoming a tenant or owner.

Tonight, the members will be invited to vote on the resolution to “allow the Caisse Desjardins des Rivières de Pontiac’s Board of Directors to relocate the Caisse’s head office in the municipality of Mansfield-et-Pontefract.” In the event that the resolution passes; Stéphane Labine:

According to Labine, the Caisse’s board directors are “unanimous” in recommending the adoption of this resolution. In the event that it is rejected, the director specifies that “the Caisse will explore locations in Fort-Coulonge”, but this “will reduce its development opportunities in the medium and long term.”

The Caisse Desjardins des Rivières de Pontiac’s extraordinary general meeting will be held at 7 pm on October 30th at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Fort-Coulonge.

The full interview with Stéphane Labine is available here.
