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:
