    QUEBEC CITY, March 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, Industrial Alliance Insurance
and Financial Services Inc. will begin mailing its 2006 Annual Report and

    The theme of Industrial Alliance's 2006 Annual Report is A PARTNER YOU

offer its clients and their family financial protection in the event of death,
disability or illness and to help them achieve financial independence at
retirement. The annual report also includes the Company's bold new logo,
inspired by the previous one, and which truly reflects its identity as a
financial institution. In addition to the message from the Chairman of the
Board and the President and Chief Executive Officer's Report, the 2006 Annual
Report contains a description of Industrial Alliance's lines of business,
management's discussion and analysis and the 2006 consolidated financial
statements.
    The Information Circular contains information about the Company's annual
general meeting, including details concerning the election of the Company's
directors and the appointment of auditors for the current year.
