What’s the origin of the Fonds de solidarité FTQ?

The Fédération des travailleurs et travailleuses du Québec created the Fonds as a response to the economic crisis of the early ’80s when Quebec was in the grips of a deep recession.

Times were tough, and the idea back then was to call on people to invest their savings to help local Quebec businesses and prevent massive layoffs.

The idea became a reality on March 3, 1983. To learn more about the Fonds de solidarité, see the following section.
