Commissions Day is a distinctive and remarkable initiative spearheaded by Desjardins Securities in which its brokers donate their commissions from one day to assist children in need. The 9th edition of the annual event took place on January 18, 2011 and raised the amount of $402,831 for the Foundation.
Prior to the March 22, 2011 game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Canadiens, Mr. Yves Néron, Vice President, Brokerage and Private Client Services and, Mr. Richard Nadeau, Vice Chairman and Director Capital Markets, Desjardins Securities, presented the cheque to Mr. Pierre Boivin, President of the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation and Club de hockey Canadien CEO.
Over the last nine years, Desjardins Securities donated over $2.7 million to the Foundation. We wish to thank all members and clients of Mouvement Desjardins for their tremendous support.
