Community engagement

Being a member of the Caisse des Technologies de l’information means being actively involved in the IT community. The caisse invests in, among other things, the following important causes:  

  • Cyber addiction, in partnership with Fondation Le Grand Chemin, providing adolescents and their parents with information, identification and detection tools as well as treatment services, notably through dedicated centres;

  • Promoting and supporting women in IT. Women make up only a small share of IT professionals, and even fewer women hold decision-making roles. The caisse aims to improve these numbers, as well as the professional integration and career advancement of women in tech.

Becoming a caisse member means supporting your community. When you open an account with the caisse, we donate $25 on your behalf to these two important causes.
