Sherbrooke, June 21st, 2016 – In collaboration with La Grande Virée Artistique de Sherbrooke, Sherbrooke’s Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton office is keeping up with its tradition by holding an art exhibit starting today, at 455 King West Street, suite 500, in Sherbrooke.

“To support emerging artists is essential to a society’s expansion. In that sense, culture is most certainly a great lever for economic development. We must allow established as well as emerging artists the chance to showcase their artworks in various settings so that the entire population can appreciate their talent.  We are proud to have been able to provide these creators with a unique place display their work, since 1987”, stated Mr. Guy Fauteux, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Eastern Townships’ Vice President.

This year’s crop is truly impressive: 45 young artists who have contributed 58 original artworks. The works had to be submitted before the May 31st closing date. Participating artists came from two universities, two colleges and six high schools, all in Sherbrooke. The selection committee chose 14 artists who will be able to display their work at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Sherbrooke office, from June 21st to September 9th, 2016.

The public is invited to come and visit this free exhibit, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Sherbrooke office. The Claude Métras Award (Prix Claude Métras) winner will be selected by a jury, and the public will get a chance to vote for their favorite artwork as well, until September 1st, 2016. The two winners will be announced during the next art opening event to be held on September 20th, 2016.

The Claude Métras Award (Prix Claude Métras) is an annual contest organized by Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton and La Grande Virée Artistique de Sherbrooke that is aimed at the Sherbrooke students, and whose goal is to encourage emerging artists, as well as shine a light on their work. The Claude Métras Award (Prix Claude Métras) is given in recognition of the businessman’s dedication to Sherbrooke’s arts and culture community.

“La Grande Virée Artistique de Sherbrooke is very happy to partner up once again with the biggest accounting firm in Québec to make local artists’ works of art known to a broader public. Our artists’ talent must be better recognized and our collaboration with the business community shows our common purpose to provide them with means to fulfill their goals and ambitions”, concluded the President of the organization, Mrs. Nancy Asselin.

Québec City, June 20, 2016. – In line with its commitment to the success of local entrepreneurs, and in particular that of women in business, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton has just finished a tour to promote female entrepreneurship. Begun in March, the tour was intended for students of Quebec secondary and college-level institutions, and was a resounding success.

This first edition of the CLEARR Effect (the acronym stands for Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton values: collaboration, leadership, excellence, agility, respect and responsibility) consisted in school visits featuring testimonials where the firm’s women of talent, along with women entrepreneurs from the region, addressed the issue of entrepreneurship and academic perseverance.

“We’re very proud of our tour. We visited some ten schools and close to 1,000 students were made aware of the issues of entrepreneurship and its significance for the development of Quebec communities and economic life. We must continually encourage the entrepreneurial succession, and we believe it’s essential to share the know-how and soft skills of exceptional women with our up-and-coming talent¾tomorrow’s managers” said Mélanie Boyer, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Partner and Women of Talent Committee Leader.

Formed in 2013, the Committee’s main mission is to highlight and promote the roles and responsibilities of women within the organization by supporting concrete actions that foster the development of communities where it is active.

The tour included educational establishments in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, Bas-Saint-Laurent, Cantons-de-l’Est, Québec City, Laval and Montréal regions.
