Overindebtedness and debt management after the holiday period are the sources of several ills for many consumers. Three Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton experts collaborated actively with TVA and LCN to report on these difficult financial situations faced by Quebec and Canadian households.

In two days, Eric Lebel, Stéphane Gauvin and Martine Robitaille, respectively Trustee Partners and Trustee Senior Manager, shared advice and suggested various recommendations so that you can afford your financial ambitions.

Mr. Lebel’s comments were the subject of two different reports on the Thursday, January 22 newscasts at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. (including the Argent channel). In particular, the reports show the major call centre in Brossard, where consumers from all over Quebec and the Ottawa and Edmundston regions can receive sound advice and personalized support regarding their personal financial situation.

Mr. Gauvin also participated, on Thursday, January 22, in a report on TVA Est-du-Québec regarding overindebtedness and the stress that can result from it. Don’t forget that a trustee is a privileged advisor, the only professional approved in Canada to negotiate possible bankruptcy options with creditors, including the consumer proposal.

Finally, Ms. Robitaille gave some key advice on Friday, January 23, while answering questions from the public on the 100 % Nouvelles show of the LCN news channel (Part 1 | Part 2)

The experts repeatedly raised the importance of making a budget and, above all, sticking to it. This is the key to sound financial planning. To achieve this, Raymond Chabot inc., a subsidiary of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, has developed a practical and user-friendly Web tool: the online budget. Don’t hesitate to refer to it!

This is outreach worthy of the professionalism of the firm’s experienced team of financial recovery advisors!
