In recent news, the issue of the actual impacts of bankruptcy in Québec has resurfaced. Daniel Germain, from Les Affaires, sat down to speak with Éric Lebel, partner and Licensed Insolvency Trustee, to demystify the consequences of bankruptcy.

Our expert reminds us that the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act is a federal act and that it’s not any easier going bankrupt in Québec than anywhere else in Canada. Furthermore, Éric confirms that there’s nothing glamourous about declaring bankruptcy and there are significant, real consequences that everyone should know about.

SMEs in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region should focus on industries other than aluminum or forestry. Éric Dufour, Regional Vice-President of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, believes that businesses would benefit from investing in sectors such as the food industry, tourism or national defense, which have unsuspected returns for the region.

Éric said: “At the start of this year, I’d like to emphasize that culture needs to change. We need to focus the spotlight on niches that are more significant that we think: the food industry, electronics, the Canadian Armed Forces base in Bagotville and knowledge technologies… These are but a few niches that business owners should turn their attention to”.

Our partner and business transfer leader calls for decision-makers to diversify their client sources in order to limit the adverse effects of economic downturns. Éric adds: “To survive over time, a business must have relationships with more than one client”.
