“At Intact, we offer young people the opportunity to make a difference – whether it’s helping a customer who has a claim, developing new technologies to enhance the customer experience or doing our part to help communities better prepare for climate change,” said Intact Financial Corporation vice-president, Human Capital Management Denise Thompson. “We value the diversity of our people and their aspirations and have developed a number of programs to help young people start and grow their careers with us.”
