The mood was enthusiastic at the June 17 press conference, as Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton and La Grande Virée Artistique de Sherbrooke announced their new partnership for the next three years.

The art circuit, holding its 13th edition this year, is recognized for promoting the innovative, creative and original approach of the region’s artists. These values of exceeding expectations are naturally aligned with the values of excellence and leadership pursued by Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton. This is why the alliance between the two organizations seemed ideal.

Luc Beaudoin, President of La Grande Virée Artistique, took the opportunity to emphasize the event’s rapid growth, particularly due to dynamic networking with the business community and the artists’ constant dedication.

In an article in the newspaper Finance et Investissement, Luc Lacombe, Tax Partner at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Laval office, reviews the advantages and disadvantages of the voluntary retirement savings plan (VRSP). According to Luc Lacombe, despite its competitors (PRPP, group RRSP, group TFSA, etc.) the VRSP undoubtedly should be favoured by employers. “We may even see a shift from group RRSPs to VRSPs,” he says.
