Social Involvement

Since contributing to the well-being of the community is a key value for Desjardins Securities, we have been cooperating since 2003 with the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation - External link. This link will open in a new window. by organizing various events.

We support their work, which has a positive impact on the health of our youth.

Every year, we also have a day where wealth managers donate their daily commissions or a lump sum to the Foundation.
