As part of its initiatives to support Québec’s future business leaders, the Caisse is organizing various activities to give students from Québec universities an opportunity to interact with experts from the Caisse. In October 2012, a portfolio manager met with students enrolled in the M.A. in Finance program at Université Laval.
In 2012, the first cohort of students graduated from the short master's program in financial engineering offered by the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS). Offered in collaboration with the Caisse, this new training program is intended to give university graduates a better understanding of how financial markets work.
On May 31, 2012, the Caisse announced a $1-billion investment in CGI, a global leader in information technology. It was the second largest investment ever made by the Caisse in a Québec company. More
As a partner of the 14th Québec Entrepreneurship Contest, the Caisse awarded $1,500 grants to the winning companies from each of the Québec regions. The regional galas will be held in the spring of 2012.
Each year, the Caisse recycles or reuses hundreds of telephones, computer and electronic equipment, office furniture and printer cartridges.
The Centre CDP Capital team uses seepage water from the parking lot (untreated water) to wash the sidewalks, water the plants on the terraces and wash the cars in the parking lot.
The Caisse was part of the first wave of institutional investors to endorse the United Nations (UN) Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). To date, more than 800 investors, managers, and experts have endorsed the principles for responsible investment.
The Caisse boasts one of the largest fund management teams in Canada and North America. It has close to 800 employees who practice over 40 different professions. More
In 2004, the Caisse was the first institution in Canada to adopt a responsible investment policy.
Each year, the Caisse awards four bursaries of $10,000 to students from the École d’Entrepreneurship de Beauce. An initiative in line with the Caisse’s commitment to support the new generation of entrepreneurs.
