The Desjardins Group is North America’s largest federation of credit unions. It was founded in 1900 in Lévis, Que. and is currently headquartered in Canada’s second-largest city, Montreal.
While Desjardins isn't technically a bank, it competes directly with the biggest banks in Canada in terms of product offerings and assets. The Desjardins brand has stood for building community and being easy to do business with since its inception. As a cooperative financial institution, those values form the core of its business model. Banking with Desjardins doesn’t mean just being its customer — it means being its co-owner.
In 2015, Desjardins purchased U.S. insurer State Farm's Canadian book of business, making it the country's third largest provider of property and casualty insurance.
Desjardins offers a wide array of discounts and savings opportunities for its auto insurance products for any customer, but Desjardins members enjoy exclusive discounts and rewards on top of those.
