In Ontario, Members from the 11 Ontario caisses populaires and delegates of the Fédération des caisses populaires de l’Ontario (FCPO) voted overwhelmingly in favour of a merger during special general meetings held in late November 2018.  The new Desjardins Ontario Credit Union will officially open on January 1, 2020. With 50 branches, a Desjardins Business centre and a Desjardins Signature Service, the new credit union will ensure its 130,000 members have access to services no matter where they are in its vast territory. The new credit union will have nearly 650 employees, 17 board members, and more than $13.6 billion in assets under management.—members-vote-in-favour-of-a-move-to-be-stronger-together-701542891.html
