This past April 12, at the Granby Zoo, the 17th Gala Génération Avenir was held to recognize the efforts, dynamism, leadership and competencies of the Granby region’s young entrepreneurs.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s team from its Granby, Bromont and Cowansville offices was very well represented at the event, and several of our experts were showcased in front of about 200  members of the region’s business community.

First of all, we should mention that Marjolaine Farand, Assurance Manager (Cowansville), was in contention in three categories: “Professional of the Year”, “Employee / Executive / Owner of the Year” and “La Voix de l’Est Personality of the Year”. Congratulations!

Let us also mention the excellent work accomplished by Rémi Dubois, Assurance Intermediary (Cowansville), who was a member of the Gala’s organizing committee and served on the Board of Directors of Génération Avenir. An honourable mention also goes to Mélissa Lachance, Assurance Manager (Cowansville), who had the honour of presenting an award in the “Young Entrepreneur” category.

“Génération Avenir” also stands for our firm’s next generation. In this capacity, two of our interns, Pierre-Luc Hébert and Marc-Antoine Paul, volunteered as hosts to accompany the different nominees and award presenters.

In an article solicited for the Canoë website, Michel Thibault, Partner and Bankruptcy Trustee at the Laval office of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, warns that families sometimes allocate too large a share of their budget to vehicles. Private vehicles account for an average of 20% of current consumer spending by Quebec households. Allocating such a large share of the household budget to this expense can involve risks. Michel Thibault points out that consumers sometimes are pushed into bankruptcy because they are unable to honour their car payment. “Some people consider their car to be essential. In many cases, they try to keep it, no matter what the cost,” he adds.
