Subject: Public finance and the recovery: Overcoming two challenges for competitiveness and prosperity in Canada

Dear Minister,

On behalf of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, I would first like to extend our warmest congratulations on your recent appointment as Minister of Finance. I wish you every success in your new position, particularly in the current context, which requires structural actions for the Canadian economy and its wealth-creating businesses. Your leadership and talent will certainly contribute to giving our economy and Canada’s economic drivers the momentum they need to succeed.

Further to the Throne Speech, where economic recovery is a priority, I would like to share with you some thoughts that aim to contribute to the competitiveness and sustainability of businesses, especially SMEs, while fostering a more competitive business climate. Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton has been acting as a trusted advisor to entrepreneurs and leaders for over 70 years, and particularly since Day 1 of the pandemic. Our team of 2,800 professionals in more than 100 offices across Quebec and in the Ottawa and Edmundston regions share the same ambition: to give local businesses the means to achieve their ambitions.
