Toronto, Ontario – September 24, 2018 – Two tornados touched down near Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Quebec on Friday leaving thousands without power, homes destroyed, and vehicles crushed. Residents were even urged to stay in their homes Monday morning as cleanup from the storm is still far from complete and large sections of the area still without power.
One insurer has quickly stepped up for their clients in this time of need. Desjardins Insurance Group has teamed up with the Canadian Red Cross and donated $50,000 to provide relief to those affected by the storm on Friday. In addition to this monetary donation, Desjardins is offering the following customized relief solutions.
Deferred payments on mortgage or consumer loans for up to 6 months.
Option of deferring credit card and Accord D financing plan payments (up to 6 months) and restructuring financing at attractive terms.
Option of deferring home and auto insurance payments (up to 6 months).
Emergency loans to cover cleaning, security and other costs.
As cleanup continues, this leniency by Desjardin allows some time for those affected by the storm to get their affairs in order after such an unexpected natural event.
