Who are we ?

The Center of Development in Insurance and Financial Services (Centre de développement en assurances et services financiers) (CDASF) is a not-for-profit organization created jointly in Fall of 2007 by eleven personal and damage insurance companies that have their headquarters in the Québec-Chaudière-Appalaches region. Hence the name “Puissance Onze” (Power Eleven) ! This initiative aims to favor its members’ growth.
