Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s presence in Beauce originated from the foundation of two separate firms in 1966 in Saint-Georges and Saint-Joseph. A series of associations between 1969 and 1979 led to the creation of Latulippe, Cliche, Bourque, Gilbert, Rodrigue & Associés, which was then merged with Renaud & Jacob to form Latulippe Renaud & Associés in 1980. This firm merged with Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton (at the time Raymond Chabot Martin Paré) in 1985.
