34 years of complicity

Much water has flowed under the bridge since Mr. Denis Savard founded his life and health insurance firm in the city of Québec in 1986. Thirty years later, MICA has become a prominent multidisciplinary financial services firm managing more than $4 billion, with more than $85 million in insurance premiums in force and with almost 85 employees at its headquarters in Québec city and its offices in Montréal.
