Montréal, May 16, 2011 – The Association des établissements de santé et de services sociaux du Québec convention has come to a close and Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Consulting Group would like to congratulate all of the stakeholders from the various establishments on this quality event.

We are proud to have been associated with the 2011 edition of the convention. One of its key themes was the challenges related to the aging population and the participating establishments’ initiative in presenting innovative and bold projects to deal with these challenges should be acknowledged.

It is clear that these initiatives build on the willingness to bring about profound changes and are aligned with our philosophy of action, where the terms “dare, dream, act and find ways” were put into practice and made it possible to carry out organizational projects for our clients. We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to the executives and professionals involved in the network, who demonstrated such drive and creativity.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is well aware that radical changes are needed in Quebec’s health and social services network in order to meet the needs of both those who work in it and those who benefit from its services. ‘‘If it were that simple, it would’ve been done already. We’re ready to help bring about this change. What’s more, our team has made major R&D investments in order to make a series of innovative approaches available that can help managers and teams play an active role in their organizations’ smooth transformation. These approaches are based on client experience management, which helps to ensure that safe and quality healthcare services are delivered at each point of contact”, concluded Marie-Hélène Desrosiers, Partner with Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Consulting Group.

Tell us what's keeping you up at night

Again this spring, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton (RCGT) will be using the “What Keeps You Up At Night?” slogan as its central ad campaign theme.

Started in 2010, the concept behind the campaign is based on the well-known expression: what keeps you up at night?

The various media positioning and ads will provide RCGT with provincial coverage while targeting major regional markets for the Firm.

RCGT will stand apart from its competitors by positioning itself in non-traditional media not expected by our clientele.

On December 20, 2010, the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et des Parcs du Québec announced a new regulation on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This new regulation will affect businesses whose GHG emissions exceed 10,000 tonnes of CO2e per year. Additionally, businesses exceeding 25,000 tonnes will have to have their emission declaration verified by an independent auditor.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton (RCGT) has developed strong expertise in the field and is the first major accounting firm in Quebec to have obtained such verification engagements in the province.

It’s within this context that two of our Firm’s experts, Gérald Daly, Assurance Partner, Montréal. and Roger Fournier, Lead Senior Manager, Environment – Greenhouse Gas, were invited by Les Affaires to speak on April 11 and 12, 2011 at the major conference “Le marché du carbone. Marchés réglementés et marchés volontaires : pour mieux en comprendre les occasions d’affaires, les enjeux et les impacts” (The carbon market. Regulated and voluntary markets: Gaining a better understanding of business opportunities, issues and impacts).
