Many Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton professionals are engaged in their community. Our people’s social involvement attests to our commitment to build an ever more dynamic, competitive and innovative society. Partner Bernard Grandmont‘s efforts as Chairman of the Board of Théâtre de la Ville (TDLV) de Longueuil is fully consistent with this perspective.

Due to the colossal work of the board members and the entire team of TDLV – a multidisciplinary professional presenter operating on a metropolitan scale, located on the campus of Cégep Édouard-Montpetit, in Longueuil – a cultural complex will emerge.

On February 21, 2014, the Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports and Minister responsible for the Montérégie region, Marie Malavoy, addressing an audience of personalities gathered at TDLV, announced an agreement in principle and a $20 million contribution by the Gouvernement du Québec for the construction of the Place Charles-Le Moyne cultural complex in Longueuil, a project developed by TDLV since 2006.

This new cultural complex will bring together four major professional organizations under the same roof: TDLV, Orchestre symphonique de Longueuil, Plein sud, centre d’exposition en art actuel, and Théâtre MOTUS.

It will also accommodate a large 1200-seat hall, a medium-sized 500-seat hall and a 350-seat cabaret venue. The complex will house the administration offices of the four organizations, two exhibition halls and studios. The opening is scheduled for the end of 2017.

For more information on this major project, see the official press release (in French).

Thank you to all the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton personnel who are committed to making a difference by furthering the economic, social and cultural growth of communities. Together, let’s continue to be involved in the success of our communities.

When the budget lock-up ended on February 20, the media from many regions of Quebec relied on Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton professionals to report on the second budget tabled by the Minister of Finance and the Economy, Nicolas Marceau.

Due to the cooperation of a team of fifteen tax and communications professionals, the firm’s clients and the general public had the opportunity to benefit from a tax bulletin, accompanied by a press release, just as they do after every budget lock-up.

Once again, several media called on experts to share their views regarding the budget. Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud it can inform its clients and the public quickly and efficiently about issues that will influence the course of Québec’s economic and fiscal activities and Quebecers during the year ahead.

Here are the interviews given by the experts:

A new trend, benching, is gaining popularity in Quebec office development strategies for its ability to promote collaboration and cut costs. In an interview with La Presse, Montréal region Vice-President Michel Noël explains why Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton adopted benching for its offices located at 800 René-Lévesque Blvd. West.

In the article, Michel mentions one of the Firm’s CLEARR values, collaboration, which these new work spaces help promote. He explains, “Accountants are known for being somewhat conservative, but we’ve always encouraged collaboration and openness to give the most to our clients. This type of set-up is a lot more accessible.”
