With social issues at the forefront of our concerns, we are resolved to help create stronger communities for the benefit of the greatest number of people.

We make inclusion part of everything we do. Whether in our work environment or in our engagement with our portfolio companies and external managers, we rely on diverse perspectives, openness and collaboration to make the best decisions. We also pay close attention to the tax practices of the companies in which we invest, so that they benefit the communities where we do business.

Our conviction

An ecosystem that supports diversity in all its forms encourages the emergence of a higher-performing economy that is both fairer and more inclusive.

Countering abusive tax planning

CDPQ is opposed to any form of tax evasion. We believe that we need to establish optimal conditions for promoting fair taxation in support of strong communities.

Like the OECD, we believe that the country where the company is incorporated is not an end in itself to determine the existence of an aggressive tax planning. This is why we analyze each investment opportunity paying special attention to the consolidated tax rate applicable and for which the rate of 15% constitutes one of the reference points.
