MONTREAL, May 3, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - For the second consecutive year,
Desjardins Group is proud to partner with the Salon de l'immigration et
de l'intégration au Québec (SIIQ) to provide visitors with expertise
and answers about Quebec's financial system.
Desjardins, the country's leading cooperative financial group, considers
the SIIQ to be an event that must not be missed for all new Quebecers.
The Salon will take place May 3 and 4 at the Palais des congrès in
"We know it's not easy to start fresh in a new country. That's why
Desjardins wants to help newcomers integrate into a new culture by
offering them a full range of financial products and services that can
meet their individual needs," says Chantale Picard, vice-president
Complementary Networks Division at Desjardins Group.
Desjardins has gathered experts from various business sectors to

kiosk will be a one-stop shop for information about financial products,
recruitment, credit or debit cards, insurance, investing in the stock
market or starting a business.
