The group born after 1995 lives in both the physical and the digital worlds. But who are they? And how will their unique characteristics impact the workplace? What are their qualities? What about their faults?

Most of the Gen Z personality traits (highly autonomous, self-taught, at ease with technological tools, etc.) make them very attractive to organizations, at least those that are ready to welcome and accommodate them. In an interview with CPA Magazine, Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, says, “Organizations have to learn to adapt because solutions come in many different ways. If we try to ‘break’ them, they’ll go elsewhere.” “They make me feel more alive, and I love their energy,” he says. “They’re very committed workers. They’re multitaskers who bring a fresh global view that embraces teamwork whatever the time, place or means. Their community is different and is defined by their passion, whether it is artificial intelligence, blockchain or anything else, and these communities span the globe.” To know more, read the article published in the October issue of CPA Magazine.

American giant Netflix has entered into an agreement with the federal government to invest $500 million over the next five years in Canada, but will it be eligible for tax credits in Canada? According to our experts Éric Julien, Canadian tax Partner, and Alexandre Laturaze, Tax Manager, the answer is Yes! Netflix will qualify, like any foreign producer, for federal and provincial tax credits for film production services.

$500M or $320M?

Will Netflix have to pay taxes in Canada to benefit from these tax credits? Are all film/TV series producers eligible for these credits? To know more about the Netflix case and related potential tax impacts, read the article published in La Presse+ on October 4, 2017!

For the fourth year in a row, the partners and employees at the Rivière-du-Loup office rallied together to participate in Défi Everest, a fund-raising event for various youth organizations.

Support for 2021 Quebec Winter Games

What is special about this challenge is that participating teams can choose the organization that will receive the money they raise. This year, the Rivière-du-Loup office decided to support its city, which will host the 2021 Quebec Winter Games.

Rivière-du-Loup Partner and office Manager Donald Savard said, “Rivière-du-Loup was the very first city to host the Quebec Games when they first began more than 40 years ago. In 2021, it will be the 50th anniversary of the Games; we are twice as proud that our city will be hosting 50 years later!”

There are considerable economic spinoffs from such an event for the city and local businesses because of the number of tourists, spectators and participants who visit.

Donald adds enthusiastically, “The Quebec Games promote healthy lifestyle choices for young people and represent a genuine springboard for the Quebec sport elite. We are proud to be associated with this cause!”

Climbing Everest… in Rivière-du-Loup!

Again this year, our climbers at the 2017 Défi Everest climbed Saint-Pierre hill a total of 150 times, which represents over 8,848 meters, that is, the height of Mount Everest.

Congratulations to Josianne Rioux-Desjardins and her team:
