Certas Direct Auto Insurance

The Certas Direct Insurance Company was established in 1993. The company is a significant player in the home and auto insurance market in the provinces of Alberta and Ontario.

Desjardins Group

The Desjardins Group is made up of several smaller subsidiary insurance and financial services companies, including The Personal, Desjardins General Insurance (DGI), Desjardins Financial Security, and Certas Direct Insurance Company. This group serves more than 5 million customers throughout Canada. Certas Direct car insurance is only available in two provinces: Ontario and Alberta.

Desjardins General Insurance

Desjardins General Insurance serves home and automobile customers in three provinces: Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec. You can get quotes for insurance by visiting the DGI website. It will take less than five minutes to fill out the form. You can also get quotes from Desjardins General Insurance by calling 1-877-699-9923. This is the same number for all three provinces. Desjardins Insurance does not offer commissions to their insurance agents, which means you should be able to find lower premiums.
