Work Set to Start on Maison de l'Acadie de Petit-Rocher

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Petit-Rocher, October 15, 2019 - The Comité permanent de développement du Juvénat (CPDJ) and UNI Financial Cooperation have announced, at a joint press conference, the start of work on the former Complexe Madisco building now known as the Maison de l’Acadie de Petit-Rocher. This initiative will also involve relocating UNI’s Petit-Rocher business location to bring it under the same roof.

“For the Committee, this renovation project is giving new life to one of the municipality’s historic buildings while also keeping in Petit-Rocher the head offices of three organizations that play an essential role in Acadian civil society: the Association francophone des municipalités du Nouveau-Brunswick, the Société de l’Acadie du Nouveau-Brunswick and the Société des Jeux de l’Acadie,” stated CPDJ chair Mylène Ouellet-LeBlanc. “We are delighted with the partnership announced today with UNI Financial Cooperation and look forward to welcoming UNI to the Maison de l’Acadie, which will serve as an institutional and commercial hub in the community. UNI is demonstrating once again that it is possible to embrace innovation while also remaining true to your values and origins.”

From UNI’s perspective, this new space accommodating the “caisse of tomorrow” will also provide the organization a testing ground for new approaches to the delivery of financial services as it continues to redefine conventional business practices. This people-friendly model will feature a coffee lounge, welcoming spaces for one-on-one conversations, a training platform and an inviting reception area as well as a configuration that sets the staff up for success in their work.

“The world is evolving quickly, and UNI is keeping up with the pace of innovation to ensure that its offerings reflect its members’ changing needs,” explained Robert Moreau, CEO of UNI Financial Cooperation. “In a context where people now do almost everything online, the quality of our service becomes even more important in ensuring UNI’s ongoing success. The business locations of the future will need to reflect this new reality as our focus shifts back to our core area of expertise and the task we have always found the most rewarding: providing personalized advice to our clients on managing and protecting their assets, whether from their school years through retirement or from an initial idea through to launching their own business.”

Work on the new caisse in Petit-Rocher starts this fall, with relocation of employees from the current business location expected to take place in the fall of 2020.

“To meet the needs of generations to come, we need to combine speed, agility and an experimental outlook,” Mr. Moreau concluded. “This test lab for new UNI offerings and experiences will assist us in reaching a new landmark in the renewal of our history—a history with a clear focus on the most promising resource our country has to offer: our children.”
