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.
