Message from Guy Cormier, president and CEO

Committed and connected to our members and clients

Being united is what I believe makes us so adaptable and focused on always doing what's best for our members and clients. I greatly appreciate what our teams have done. Thanks to what we accomplished, our financial performance meets expectations.

As inflation climbs, Desjardins is committed to being a leader. We're actively promoting economic activity and regional development from coast to coast through the Momentum Fund, the GoodSpark Fund and the GoodSpark Grants.

We were also able to support thousands of young people through our Together For Our Youth program, as well as through scholarships for all levels of post-secondary education, regardless of their field of study.

This year, Desjardins took concrete action to speed up the transition to a low-carbon economy. Take our new responsible investment solutions, for example, or how we added a performance indicator to our environmental, social and governance assessment. We were also actively involved in various committees on the subject and made training on sustainable development and responsible finance mandatory for all Desjardins employees.

Lastly, I'd like to underscore the exceptional dedication of our directors and employees. And thank you to our 7.5 million members and clients for choosing Desjardins.
