Proposed Amendments to Fonds de solidarité FTQ Enabling Act Will Allow the Organization to Complete Implementation of Its New Governance

If ratified, the amendments proposed to the Act to establish the Fonds de solidarité des travailleurs du Québec (F.T.Q.), tabled today before the National Assembly, will allow the Fonds de solidarité FTQ to continue implementing its new governance. Under the bill, the majority of the Board’s directors will be elected by shareholders at general meetings.

The Fonds de solidarité FTQ is a development capital fund that calls upon the solidarity and savings of Quebecers to help fulfill its mission to contribute to Québec's economic growth by creating and protecting jobs through investments in small and medium-sized businesses in all spheres of activity.

The Fonds also seeks to encourage Quebecers to save for retirement and to offer its over half a million shareholders-savers a reasonable return over and above the outstanding tax benefits they receive by purchasing Fonds shares.
