Over $300,000 raised for underprivileged children!
For the occasion, our three teams, comprised of twenty employees and partners from the Eastern Townships offices, ran the 124 km around Lake Memphremagog under a beautiful autumnal sun. Thanks to their participation along with that of more than 200 teams registered in the challenge, over $300,000 were raised for school perseverance and success, a record for this eighth edition of the event!

Hats off to our employees and partners for their efforts and determination!

In a September 20 article in Journal Les affaires, Luc Lacombe, Tax Partner at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, advises companies on the retirement plan to adopt for their employees.

Since, July 1, 2014, Quebec has begun the gradual implementation of voluntary retirement savings plans (VRSP). Ultimately, businesses with at least five employees who do not offer any other type of savings plan will have the VRSP imposed on them. Before the deadline, there is still time for entrepreneurs to analyze the options available to them and determine the plan most appropriate to their situation.
