Chantal Friset

A few weeks ago, Chantal Friset, Partner in Management Consulting Group at the Montréal office, gave a conference at a major convention organized jointly by the Association des médecins d’urgence du Québec (AMUQ) and the Association des gestionnaires infirmiers d’urgence du Québec (AGIUQ).

Sustained Commitment

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton was also involved in the event as a sponsor of the recognition award (Prix reconnaissance), which pays tribute to an establishment’s innovative contribution to improving its emergency department. Interesting fact: thanks to our Firm, the winner of this award is entitled to take part in the prestigious Emergency Nurses Association’s leadership convention in the United States, one of the main events in management-based professional development in this area.

Congratulations to Chantal Friset for her commitment: she has been involved in this event for the last three years as Chairperson and, every year, as a speaker.

The professional services Firm is the first in the country to launch an iPad mobile app incorporating a tax calculator

MONTRÉAL, March 15, 2012 – Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton officially launched its Tax Planning Guide 2011-2012 today. The 28th edition of this free, unique and versatile tool provides up-to-date personal tax information.

Jean Gauthier, Partner and National Tax Director stated, “The Tax Planning Guide has always been an innovative guide and reference that provides strategic information as well as tips, tables and tax information for other provinces.” The Tax Planning Guide 2011-2012 is available online, at www.taxplanningguide.ca, as well as on iTunes (http://bit.ly/planningguide2012) as an iPhone, iPod Touch and, for the first time this year, iPad app.

“We are innovating again this year,” Jean Gauthier continued. “The Tax Planning Guide iPad app now offers a handy and easy-to-use simulator for Quebec taxpayers. We have a very simple objective: make a tool available for anyone who wants it, that will help with tax planning and avoid nasty surprises. The tax calculator is a versatile, personalized tool that uses the individual’s financial profile to determine his or her tax rate.”

The Tax Planning Guide’s electronic versions were such a success that Grant Thornton International Ltd has followed suit by offering the new World in Figures iPad app in association with the prestigious “The Economist” magazine.
