This department is one of the more recent at the FCNQ. Its mission is to identify business opportunities for cooperatives and develop implementation plans.
The best example of this is the creation of the Nunavik Financial Services Cooperative, which, in cooperation with the Caisse d'économie solidaire Desjardins (CECOSOL), has established a network of banking service counters in Nunavik affiliated with the Fédération des caisses Desjardins.
The main objective of this enterprise is to "Provide complete and reliable financial services to individuals, institutions and enterprises in the whole Nunavik region through the establishment of a financial services cooperative belonging to them."
The people who work in this department stay on top of news about economic projects to make sure that cooperatives are positioned to take advantage of them.
Thanks to the strength of the cooperative network and its experience in development and project management in remote regions, the FCNQ remains one of the most important economic drivers in the Great North.
