Fidéides 2017 - LogoRaymond Chabot Grant Thornton is very proud to be among the 2017 Fidéides finalists in the “Business and Social Engagement” category. This award is given by the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de Québec to recognize organizations that play an active role in improving the quality of life in their community, a perfect reflection of our values.

The result of an outstanding day of community involvement

This appointment comes in the wake of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s September 23, 2016 community volunteering day that rallied some 800 employees. Most of the firm’s 100 offices were closed on that day to allow employees to give back to the community. The event was a resounding success and the firm’s nomination is directly related to an activity that took place in Saint-Anselme at Les Enfants d’Amour, under the management of Louise Brissette, where close to 400 employees participated.

Making a difference in the community

Our people’s personal and professional engagement is what makes our firm an organization that stands out not only for its quality professional services but also for making a difference in the communities where it works. Thank you to all the employees and partners for their outstanding enthusiasm and engagement on that memorable day!

The award gala will take place on March 16, 2017 in Québec City with the winners being announced at that time, but we already know that the true winners are the 50 organizations that we helped on that day throughout Quebec and in Ottawa!
