Fondaction: Fonds de développement de la Confédération des syndicats nationaux pour la coopération et l'emploi

The purpose of this information notice is to provide you with information concerning changes to the Fondaction.

On March 19, 2009, the Government of Quebec announced a temporary increase in their provincial tax credit for the purchase of shares issued by Fondaction after May 31, 2009.

The provincial tax credit for the purchase of Fondaction shares increased from 15% to 25% effective June 1, 2009. The Federal tax credit stays the same at 15%.
