A Platinum Partnership
A platinum partnership with Desjardins: It was with great pleasure that the “Caisse Desjardins de Drummondville”, the “Caisse des policies et policières” and the “Centre des services financiers des pompiers”, all three united under the effigy of Desjardins, signed an agreement of platinum partnership with the North American Police and Fire Games.
On February 19, the custodians of the four organisations were gathered around a table, accompanied by representatives of the city of Drummondville, to officialise the 50 000$ agreement.
This first edition of the North American Police and Fire Games will be held from July 1st to 10th 2016 in Drummondville and will host more than 2000 athletes performing in 25 sports disciplines as well as generating economic benefits of more than 3 000 000$ for the regional economy.
The organising committee of the Games predict an attendance of 100 000 spectators, spread on 10 days, in addition to 1000 accompaniers. The committee aims to have 17 000 policemen and 5 000 firefighters of the province of Quebec as well as policemen and firefighters from Ontario and New Brunswick in Canada, from the states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and New York of America.
