Share redemption in case of a loss

Fonds de solidarité FTQ shareholders whose homes have been damaged by the flooding can ask the Fonds to redeem their shares.

Under the Fonds' purchase-by-agreement policy, as approved by the Government of Québec, certain conditions must be met and the following documents provided when requesting a redemption for a loss pertaining to a principal residence:

  • The Fonds form titled "Loss Involving to Principal Residence," including the shareholder's solemn declaration to the effect that he is unable to pay the expenses resulting from the loss;
  • Proof of the loss;
  • Proof of partial indemnification or absence of indemnification;
  • Proof of the costs related to the loss;
  • Proof that all redeemable investments have been cashed or that they are not redeemable.

All shares are eligible for redemption up to the amount required to cover all or a substantial part of the costs incurred. Shareholders who cash in their shares under this criterion cannot purchase Fonds shares for one year after the redemption.
