Hello,
I took the necessary steps to open my account online and I received an email from Desjardins.
However, I cannot open the attached document, even by entering my passport number as a password. Can you help me?
Cordially.

Hello.
Thank you for your interest in Desjardins.

Following the first email with your RIB Desjardins from our New Arrivals team, you should have received a second containing a password to open it.

PLEASE NOTE: emails sometimes arrive in the SPAM mailbox or spam.

If this is not the case you can directly contact our team dedicated to new arrivals and non-residents:
+ 1-514-875-4266, option 1

Hello !
It seems, when opening a remote account, that it is necessary to give the address that we will have in Canada. Except I intend (as many surely!) To take advantage of the Working Holiday Permit to change place and even province more or less regularly ... what should I communicate as an address?

Hello.
Thank you for your interest in Desjardins.
For the "Address in Canada" section, you can tell us the neighborhood where you think you will even be living temporarily or work to allow us to choose the Caisse (= agency) most convenient for you. Then we can change it with your final address.

Hello,
Is the "good garden plan" with Globe PVT valid for Calgary and / or Vancouver?
Thank you

Hello,

First of all, thank you for your interest in Desjardins and congratulations on your project in Canada.

Desjardins is present throughout Quebec and Ontario but we are not present in the rest of Canada as you will see on www.desjardins.com/localisateur
However, our payment methods (debit card, credit card, checks, INTERAC transfers, etc.) work across Canada.

If you have other Canadian banking questions, we invite you to directly contact our team dedicated to newcomers and non-residents:
+ 1-514-875-4266, option 1 [email protected]

HELLO
I'm flying tomorrow for Montreal.
I received the certificate of transfer of funds, to make my transfer via transfer wise and I cannot send money because it is written that my account number must contain 16 characters, except it has only 15 !! does this have to do with the absence of a verifier number?

Hi Michaël, has the problem been solved? I know that many pvtistes go through Transfermate to send their money to a Desjardins account and that it works well. The two transfer organizations should work more or less the same so normally it should be good :)

Hello ,
I would like to benefit from the good Desjardins plan to make transfers before my departure, but the bank asks me for an address in Canada. That I am not at the moment because when I arrive I will be in an airbnb. How did the PVTiste do ???

Hello.
Thank you for your comment and your interest in Desjardins. We actually ask you for an address in Canada to select the agency (called the Caisse) that is most convenient for you once there. You can therefore tell us "roughly" the district where you plan to live and / or work.
