On May 12 and 13, 2016, the conference called, Assises de l’Union des municipalités du Québec (UMQ), was held at the Québec City Convention Centre. The event brought together more than 1,000 of our major municipalities’ mayors and general directors.

For the sixth consecutive year, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton was the main collaborator on this important gathering.

This year’s theme was “Government 3.0” referring to the third level of government. “With great power comes great responsibility”, cited Partner Pierre Fortin during his presentation on leadership and managerial courage to 300 participants. The event was a success!

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to have hosted the Big RDV Relève Inc. EventTM on Friday, May 13, 2016, at the Palais des congrès de Montréal. Organized by the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal alongside the Fonds de solidarité FTQ, the event brought together nearly 300 people from the business community.

Conferences and discussions took place on the concerns of both assignors and purchasers. Our National Business Transfer Leader, Éric Dufour, led a panel on the intergenerational aspects of business transfers, an essential topic in succession planning. To illustrate the importance of these issues, three panelists participated in the discussion; François Vachon, from Meunerie de St‑Frédéric, Luc Sirois, from Entreprise d’électricité Sirois, and Jonathan Tremblay, from Sylviculture Tramfor, representing baby boomers, and generations X and Y, respectively.

The event’s theme also made waves in the media when Éric Dufour was interviewed by RDI Économie on May 13.

Partnership campaign with RDV Relève

The Big RDV Relève Event is part of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal (BTMM) and Fonds de solidarité FTQ’s promotion campaign, of which Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is also a proud partner. Various initiatives were implemented during the campaign to raise the population’s awareness regarding the succession issue, including:

As an engaged and responsible firm, we are very proud to play a leading role in successions and business transfers. This is a major issue for Quebec and Canada’s prosperity. Our firm is and will always be involved!
