Gilles Desjardins Vision

Gilles Desjardins

“People who gives on a regular basis, either time, energy or money, understands the positive impacts in others. The first time I granted a sponsorship, I felt something powerful because I have noticed the difference it made. I have proudly experienced this emotion a few thousand times since. To contribute to my region’s improvement has always been the biggest objective of my life.”
– Gilles Desjardins, 2018 recipient of the Meritorious Service Decoration (Civil Division)

Brigil is still confident, in a near future, to be able to build an iconic project which will allow the society to provide massively for local education and health system in the next decades. Brigil encourages its employees and partners to get involved in many ways to improve our collectivity and its citizens well-being.

Gilles Desjardins received the Meritorius Service Medal from Governor General Julie Payette, on November 5th 2018, at Rideau Hall. He was decorated for his several philanthropic actions enhancing the quality of life in the National Capital Region.

Involvement Areas

Brigil’s mission, “Proud to build a better quality of life”, is subdivided in many ways. Brigil real estate society has forged itself a great reputation as an experienced builder, thanks to its numerous communities in the National Capital Region, and has made a habit of investing in various and helpful organizations early on.

Brigil gradually shaped its implication to help the best way possible, while learning all about the unique world of philanthropy. Today, Brigil is still growing strong after 35 years of charitable actions in a few areas for more than 300 organizations and knows how philanthropy works.

Brigil is engaged for the next years with plenty of charitable organizations in the National Capital Region.
