Desjardins General Insurance Group (DGIG) 2018 Financial Leaflet

“What do the windstorm that hit parts of Ontario and Quebec on May 4, and the tornados that struck Ottawa and Gatineau on September 21 have in common? Both natural disasters were extraordinary, and caused a lot of damages, putting a great deal of stress on thousands of our insureds. However, there was a silver lining to be found in these truly unfortunate situations: we were able to show our members and clients that we’re always there for them, even when times are tough.” - Denis Dubois, president of DGIG.
