Le rendement moyen pondéré annualisé des fonds des déposants de la Caisse de dépôt s’est élevé à 4,2 % en 2018. 

À titre de comparaison, en 2017, la Caisse de dépôt et placement avait atteint un rendement de 9,3 %, ce qui constituait sa meilleure performance en quatre ans.

« En 2018, notre stratégie d’investissement a été mise à l’épreuve », a affirmé Michael Sabia par voie de communiqué, jeudi.

Le président et chef de la direction de la Caisse de dépôt et placement cite, en guise d’exemple de tumultes sur les marchés, « le début de la normalisation des politiques monétaires, l’escalade tarifaire et des incertitudes politiques ».

Mais M. Sabia salue, du même souffle, la capacité qu’a eue la Caisse « de bien performer dans de tels marchés ».

À la fin de l’exercice financier de 2018, l’actif net de ce qui est considéré comme « le bas de laine des Québécois » a atteint 309,5 milliards de dollars. Cela représente une augmentation de plus de 50 % comparativement à l’actif net enregistré il y a cinq ans.

  • Le rendement moyen pondéré annualisé des fonds des déposants de la Caisse de dépôt s’est élevé à 8,4 % sur cinq ans;
  • La performance de la Caisse par rapport à celle de son portefeuille de référence représente une valeur ajoutée de 5,3 milliards de dollars en 2018;
  • Sur cinq ans, 16,7 milliards de dollars ont été générés en valeur ajoutée, au total.

Les principaux types de placement de la Caisse de dépôt sont :

  • des revenus fixes comme les obligations;
  • des actifs réels, c’est-à-dire immeubles, infrastructures, énergie renouvelable, industries, technologies, logistique;
  • des actions.

En 2018, les actifs réels ont été particulièrement rentables pour la Caisse de dépôt.

Rendements par type de placements

  • Revenu fixe 2,1 %
  • Actifs réels 9 %
  • Actions 3,5 %

Des placements privés qui rapportent

La Caisse est parvenue à un rendement de 4,2 % en dépit des turbulences qui ont secoué les marchés boursiers mondiaux. Les portefeuilles d’actions de la Caisse au Canada et dans les marchés en croissance ont enregistré des rendements négatifs.

En revanche, le portefeuille de placements privés de la Caisse « s’est particulièrement démarqué en 2018, avec un rendement de 16,6 %, près du double de son indice ».

Ce portefeuille est constitué de titres d’entreprises dans lesquelles la Caisse prend des positions négociées sur une base privée. La Caisse mise aussi sur la création de partenariats avec des gestionnaires de fonds, qui gèrent une partie des actifs du portefeuille.

Parmi les sociétés dans lesquelles la Caisse de dépôt a investi figurent l’allemande Techem, la française Alvest et FNZ, firme mondiale du secteur des FinTech.

Sixteen days into October, Ottawa has already set the record for most cases of COVID-19 in a single month.

Ottawa Public Health reported 99 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa today, and three more deaths linked to novel coronavirus.

Ontario’s Ministry of Health had reported 108 new cases of COVID-19, but there is sometimes a lag in COVID-19 case reporting between Ontario and Ottawa Public Health. On Wednesday, Ontario reported 39 new cases in Ottawa, while Ottawa Public Health reported 45 new cases.

There have been 1,511 laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa in October, surpassing the September record of 1,413 new cases.

Since the first case of COVID-19 on March 11, there have been 5,908 laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa, including 301 deaths.

Across Ontario, there are 712 new cases of COVID-19 on Friday. Health Minister Christine Elliott reported 213 new cases in Toronto, 135 in Peel Region and 62 in York Region.

HOSPITALIZATIONS IN OTTAWA

One more person was admitted to an Ottawa hospital with COVID-19 related illnesses on Friday.

Ottawa Public Health reports 47 people are currently in hospital with COVID-19, including eight in the intensive care unit.

ACTIVE CASES OF COVID-19 IN OTTAWA

The number of active cases of COVID-19 increased on Friday.

There are 792 active cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa, up from 777 active cases on Thursday.

A total of 4,806 people have recovered after testing positive for COVID-19.

The number of active cases is the number of total laboratory-confirmed cases minus the numbers of resolved cases and deaths. A case is considered resolved 14 days after known symptom onset or positive test result.

Ottawa mayor rejects possible return of Ottawa-Gatineau border checkpoints, ‘I really don’t think they work’

Editor

Mayor Jim Watson does not want to see police checkpoints return to the five interprovincial crossings between Ottawa and Gatineau, saying “I really don’t think they work.”

Earlier this week, Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin told the Ottawa Citizen that police checkpoints could return to the Ottawa-Gatineau border at “any time,” with the final decision in the hands of the Quebec Government. Earlier this month, Dr. Brigitte Pinard of the Centre Integre de sante et de services sociaux de l’Outaouais said border checkpoints were “possible,” adding “right now, our message is to limit large gatherings.”

When asked by CTV Morning Live host Leslie Roberts about the possibility of police checkpoints returning to the Ontario-Quebec border, Watson said he did not think they worked back in the spring.

“There were so many gaps when the police were not there, and people just figured out I’ll go at an earlier time or a later time. We saw police officers sticking their heads in the car with no masks, so that was not healthy for those individuals,” said Watson Friday morning.

“It’s a costly expense when our police are stretched already to the limit trying to do the work, to have them set up at five different bridge points potentially 24 hours a day would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars every month and I think the money is better spent.”

On April 1, Gatineau Police and the Surete du Quebec set up checkpoints along the Ottawa-Gatineau border to limit non-essential trips into Gatineau. Gatineau Police estimated the random police checkpoints between April 1 and May 17 cost the service more than $400,000.

Mayor Watson tells CTV Morning Live that the Quebec Government’s decision to move Gatineau into the “red zone” two days after Ontario moved Ottawa to a modified Stage 2 should help.

“We are a close relationship and when things happen in Gatineau there’s often a trickle effect over here and I think the fact that we’re both in the red zone, and Quebec of course is the worst hit province, at least levels the playing field for our restaurants and bars,” said Watson.

“I think in the past what had happened was our restaurants and bars would close and then the ones in Gatineau would stay open, and then people from Ottawa would go over there irresponsibly, in my opinion, and then come back potentially with the virus and spread it here.”

While border checkpoints would limit the non-essential travel across the Ottawa-Gatineau border, Watson says that’s not the way to beat COVID-19.

“The message is very clear, stick to your household. This is not the time to have an AirBNB party or a keg party in your backyard, or have 20 people or 30 people in for an engagement party. I know a lot of these get-togethers are important socially for people and emotionally, but we have to ask people to be reasonable and responsible, and this is not the year to do those kinds of things.”

Roberts asked the mayor if he would have a conversation about border checkpoints with Gatineau’s mayor.

“I had it the first go-around, but at the end of the day I also respect their jurisdiction and their autonomy. It is the province that would have to impose that, not the municipality,” said Watson.

“From our perspective, we don’t think it’s an effective use of resources. We want to continue to get the message across that we can win this battle against COVID-19 if we socially distance, we wear a mask, we actually follow the simple rules that are put forward.”

Ottawa woman breaks 14-day quarantine rule to work at long-term care home: police

OTTAWA — A 53-year-old Ottawa woman is facing charges under the federal Quarantine Act after Ottawa police say she failed to self-isolate for 14 days after travelling abroad and returned to work at a long-term care home.

Ottawa Police say information was received indicating that an Ottawa woman had travelled abroad. She returned to Canada on Sept. 26, so she was required under federal law to quarantine for 14 days, until Oct. 9

“The woman decided not to respect this order and went to work on Sept. 30 at a long-term health facility in Ottawa,” police said in a news release. “When management was apprised of the situation, she was immediately sent home. The facility immediately activated mitigating self-isolation and cleaning protocols and informed all persons that had been in contact with the subject.”

Police say none of the residents of the long-term care facility have tested positive for COVID-19 as a result of the woman attending work.

Ottawa police say this is the first person they have charged under the Quarantine Act during the pandemic.

The woman is charged with failing to comply with entry condition under section 58 of the Quarantine Act and cause risk of imminent death or serious bodily harm under section 67 of the Quarantine Act.

The maximum penalty for causing risk of imminent death or serious bodily harm is a $1 million fine and three years in prison. For failing to self-isolate for 14 days, she faces a $750,000 fine and up to six months in jail.

Police did not release the name of the woman, nor where she worked. The woman is due in court on Nov. 24.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson’s office issued a statement following the announcement of the charges.

“Mayor Watson was disturbed to learn about the alleged carelessness of the individual in question. This type of reckless behaviour could have harmed their colleagues, and more importantly, the residents of the long term care home. We must all do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community.”
