Founder Message

Gilles Desjardins

As Brigil's President and Founder, as well as a husband and father, I understand what the purchase of your home means to you. That is why we hire the best housing representatives in the industry. Their job is to listen, understand, and put your needs first. We ensure that your new home reflects all of your desires.

Together, we make your dreams come true!

Gilles Desjardins
President and Founder



Talking about the environment is good but acting is better. Thus, Brigil addresses the sensitive issue of environmental protection in its many residential projects. Being one of the largest residential builders in the National Capital Region implies major responsibilities to the community, including acting as leader in sustainable development.

This commitment translates into a daily concern to surpass municipal and provincial standards and is embodied by a policy of integrating residential projects into their existing physical environments, rather than brutally adapting natural environments to fit construction requirements.
