Pre-subscription allows you to express your interest in acquiring CRCD shares. It will run from 9 a.m. on Monday August 26 to 4 p.m. on Monday September 16, 2024.

During this period, interested parties must complete a pre-registration request using the secure web form available on this page or on the Desjardins website.

Purchase process

If demand for shares exceeds the allowed amount, a random selection process will be use among people who have completed the pre-subscription form.

If demand for shares is less than the allowed amount, all investors who have complete the form will be able to buy shares.

Subscription (selected investors only)

All selected investors, whether or not they are already CRCD shareholders, will be able to subscribe directly online via AccèsD, without having to make an appointment at a caisse.

Investors who do not use AccèsD or wish to obtain financial advice or support should contact a Desjardins caisse to make an appointment with an advisor.

If you were selected at random as an investor, you had from September 26, 2023, to January 4, 2024, to subscribe.
