On May 12 and 13, 2016, the conference called, Assises de l’Union des municipalités du Québec (UMQ), was held at the Québec City Convention Centre. The event brought together more than 1,000 of our major municipalities’ mayors and general directors.

For the sixth consecutive year, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton was the main collaborator on this important gathering.

This year’s theme was “Government 3.0” referring to the third level of government. “With great power comes great responsibility”, cited Partner Pierre Fortin during his presentation on leadership and managerial courage to 300 participants. The event was a success!

Every year, we assist a great number of municipalities in the areas of assurance, tax and advisory services, putting our firm in a leadership position in the municipal sector.

Organized by the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal alongside the Fonds de solidarité FTQ, the event brought together nearly 300 people from the business community.

Conferences and discussions took place on the concerns of both assignors and purchasers. Our National Business Transfer Leader, Éric Dufour, led a panel on the intergenerational aspects of business transfers, an essential topic in succession planning. To illustrate the importance of these issues, three panelists participated in the discussion; François Vachon, from Meunerie de St‑Frédéric, Luc Sirois, from Entreprise d’électricité Sirois, and Jonathan Tremblay, from Sylviculture Tramfor, representing baby boomers, and generations X and Y, respectively.

The event’s theme also made waves in the media when Éric Dufour was interviewed by RDI Économie on May 13.

The Big RDV Relève Event is part of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal (BTMM) and Fonds de solidarité FTQ’s promotion campaign, of which Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is also a proud partner.
