The digital economy, climate change and changing demographics are among the many challenges facing today’s cities.
Members of the Association des directeurs généraux des municipalités du Québec (ADGMQ) met for their annual convention from June 6 to 8, 2018 in Rimouski under the theme “L’Humain au cœur de nos villes”.
As one of the event partners, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to be associated with the ADGMQ and to continue providing its support and expertise to municipalities to help them grow and improve their management.
Pierre Fortin, Partner, Management Consulting and Municipal Sector Leader presented a workshop during the event on major municipal issues.
He explains, “A municipality’s role is not limited to developing its territory. This proximity government must also support economic prosperity, ensure social cohesion, take on its environmental responsibilities and manage effectively and efficiently, all within the context of increasingly important new technological realities.”
