Mission and business model

A mission that guides us

The Fonds de solidarité FTQ is a development capital fund that was created in 1983 by the Fédération des travailleurs et travailleuses du Québec (FTQ) during a severe economic recession. The Fonds uses the savings and solidarity of Québecers as a vector to support the economy and maintain employment.

Today, the Fonds is a key player in the Québec economy. With net assets of $18.9 billion[1], it contributes to sustainable economic development and job creation throughout the province. The Fonds relies on a vast network of over 3,700 partner companies[2] across the province and is supported by more than 769,000 savers and shareholders.[1]

The Fonds is resolutely focused on the future. By providing Québec entrepreneurs with patient capital, the Fonds helps them grow, innovate, and offer quality jobs.

The 4 pillars of our mission

As a knowledge and resource hub for savers and businesses, the Fonds continues to pursue its mission, which remains as relevant today as it was 40 years ago.
