For and by 7000+ members of the military community

The mission of our Credit Union is to provide financial guidance to the Canadian military community, including those in uniform or civilian attire, veterans, and their families. The Credit Union is not tied to a postal code. It serves a community regardless of distance or time zone: the members of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Department of National Defense employees. Dedicated and specialized, the Military Credit Union provides personalized support for the diverse needs of each of its members throughout their life journeys. As a financial cooperative deeply rooted in its community for almost 80 years, our Caisse has 7,000 members across Canada. Each member is also one of its co-owners who can participate in strategic decisions by getting involved in its decision-making bodies.

We are members of Desjardins Group

Excellent service since the beginning of my military career. Personalized service and financial advice that takes into consideration the various factors of a military career.

Patrick Gélineau-Roy, Military and member of the Caisse


The Caisse Desjardins des militaires is the result of the merger of the Valcartier Credit Union and the Bagotville Credit Union in 2000. The administrators decided to extend the Caisse's financial services to the military community in the Greater Montreal area by opening a service center in September 2006 at the megastructure in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. In 2009, the Caisse's services became available to the Outaouais, Ottawa and Ontario regions with the opening of a service center in Gatineau. For several years, the Caisse has been assisting military members working outside Quebec and Canada with their financial needs.
