Learn more about Desjardins Insurance.

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.

Desjardins Insurance Canada is one of the country’s major insurance providers. 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.

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.

Desjardins’s car insurance arm offers all customers a wide array of discounts and savings opportunities for its auto insurance products, but Desjardins members enjoy exclusive discounts and rewards on top of the standard discounts.
