Our story

Sagard was created by Power Corporation du Canada. The Desmarais family brought together French-speaking industrial families who had created and led successful, sustainable business enterprises.

Sagard’s growth has been impelled by this commitment to supporting new projects by bold, trail-blazing entrepreneurs.

We believe that many entrepreneurs want to be supported by a sparring partner who can help them to sustainably expand into new geographies or new markets.

«For decades, we have been supporting the development of large companies around the world. We want to provide the same resources to French-speaking entrepreneurs through Sagard.”
