On May 16, 2023, at the Château Royal in Laval, the Centre québécois de formation en fiscalité (CQFF) celebrated its 30th anniversary in the company of some 100 participants along with several partners and colleagues.

Honouring CQFF founder Yves Chartrand

This event was an opportunity to thank the many participants who, since 1992, have been taking annual tax training courses from the CQFF’s talented team. It also highlighted the remarkable contribution of the CQFF’s founder, Yves Chartrand.

Recently retired, Yves has put all his heart, passion and talent into building a solid team that has become the leading tax reference in Québec!

“Our entire CQFF team, our partners and our colleagues at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton—the leading professional services firm in Québec and a strategic CQFF partner since 2021—join me in thanking Mr. Chartrand for his valuable contribution to the organization’s success. His legacy is an important one, and we will continue to thrive according to the standard of excellence and quality that marked his career,” said Daniel Benard, the CQFF’s executive director.
