See how Desjardins Insurance is committed to building safer communities
At Desjardins Insurance, your safety matters to us. We partner with various Canadian organizations to help communities become more safe and more aware of the risks that face them.
While a driver's licence is a route to independence for many Canadian teenagers, car crashes are also the leading cause of death for young people between the ages of 15 and 20. Together, Parachute Canada and Desjardins Insurance work to make a difference and bring these numbers down.
Traffic Injury Research Foundation
The Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF), is Canada's leading research institute when it comes to road safety. Since 1964, TIRF has proven to be a world leader in research through program and policy development, evaluation and sharing their findings to help prevent injuries and death on Canadian roads.
Canada Safety Council
Started in 1968, the Canada Safety Council (CSC) is a national charity that is solely dedicated to the safety of Canadians. Through their various training programs, awareness campaigns, publications and ongoing advocacy, the CSC is able to help prevent damage to property, injury and death.
Working with various community partners, Arrive Alive has been identifying, implementing and supporting initiatives to eliminate impaired driving.
Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse
The Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse (CCSA) is Canada's only agency with a legislated national mandate to reduce the harms of alcohol and other drugs on Canadian society. They do so by gathering the latest evidence and sharing that evidence widely. Together with their partners, they help mobilize individual and collective efforts to achieve collective impact on the major health and social issue of problematic substance use.
