Importance of community involvement

Réal Létourneau, Vice-President for the Eastern Townships region, addressed the crowd to thank them for their support and mention the importance of cooperating, sharing and being involved in the community. In an interview with the daily La Tribune, Mr. Létourneau took the opportunity to highlight the firm’s social commitment. “We believe we have played a role in the development of Sherbrooke and its community, because this firm has always sought to make a social commitment. It has always been important to be a valuable corporate citizen. There is a little bit of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton behind the region’s dynamic spirit,” Mr. Létourneau declared.
