DFSIN Atlantic Centres

Our financial centre

At our Atlanic provinces financial centres, we put our clients first. We understand that every client is unique. Whether you’re seeking financial planning advice, insurance, information on mutual funds, or any other innovative products we offer, our financial advisors are here to help.

Independent advisors

Our advisors are not limited to one line of products, and we are not tied to a specific company. Having access to Desjardins Insurance[1] financial products, as well as, a wide range of financial products from other high quality financial institutions benefits our clients. We are able to look at each person’s individual needs and guide them in choosing the best services and tools to help them achieve their financial goals and dreams. It is our integrated, personalized and progressive approach that makes the difference.

Each financial advisor is independent, yet we share common goals. We are committed to professionalism, excellence, integrity and customer service. 


Our history

Established in 1972 in partnership with Desjardins Insurance[1], our office in Halifax has received numerous awards, including the “Financial Centre of the Year” award in 2003, 2004 and 2005 (outside Quebec). It is a growing financial centre with over twenty advisors to serve you!

Many Newfoundlanders may be surprised to learn that Desjardins is a very well-known name in other Canadian provinces. Interestingly, Desjardins Insurance is one of the largest suppliers of group insurance for government and private organizations in Newfoundland. It is also the largest financial cooperative in Canada but it always wasn’t like this; it started with humble beginnings.

And on Prince Edward Island, The Farmers’ Bank in the village of Rustico was in business from 1864 to 1894. It’s often considered as the first community-led bank in Canada. Many see it as the precursor of the North American credit union movement through its influence upon Alphonse Desjardins who opened the first office in 1900.


Community involvement

We are committed to making a positive difference in the Atlantic region. We are proud to work with charities and events that matter to the communities we live, work and play in. These include:

  • Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Charlottetown
  • East Coast Student Leadership Conference
  • "Manuary” Head and Neck Cancer charity
  • Royal Canadian Legion in Nova Scotia
  • Royal St. John's Regatta
  • QEII Ride for Cancer
