The School Caisse,
the discipline of saving

The School Caisse is so much more than an envelope for your child to deposit money in. See for yourself!

How does it work?


During the school year, students at participating schools can deposit money in envelopes on deposit days.


Throughout the year (even when school's out), parents or friends can make deposits through Desjardins money transfers.


You and your child can go to your financial institution to make a deposit in person with the assistance of a teller.

La valeur de l'argent

Why the School Caisse?

Because kids need to learn about money

In addition to the value of money and consumer goods, the School Caisse will teach your child the importance of setting savings goals, respecting commitments and managing money well.
