Desjardins Assurance-prêt étudiant

On August 2nd 2017, a Motion for Authorization to Institute a Class Action was filed with the Superior Court of Quebec in the present case. The plaintiff alleges notably that for more than a decade, Desjardins imposed a loan insurance to proposed class members. This loan insurance was automatically added to the terms of reimbursement of student loans of students who had not entered into an agreement with Desjardins within a period of six months following the end of their studies.

This class action is led by Belleau Lapointe, LLP.
