The history of Desjardins Group is thoroughly intertwined with that of modern Quebec. For over 100 years now, the development of the Desjardins network and the diversification of its activities paralleled the social and economic boom of the province. Desjardins, one of the biggest financial groups in the country today, has always been true to the philosophy of its founder, Alphonse Desjardins : to contribute to the well-being of individuals and communities. In addition to offer complete banking services to nearly 6 million members and clients, Desjardins use the strength of cooperation to contribute to the economic and social development of their communities. Parks Canada would like to thank the Caisse Desjardins de Limoilou
for their financial support to the Meeting of the Cultures Event at Cartier-Brébeuf National Historic Site.
