On October 11 at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal was held the Permit Presentation ceremony of the Ordre des comptables professionnels agréés du Québec.

After this ceremony, which aims to welcome new CPAs in the accounting profession and to highlight the success of candidates or new members who won honors at different evaluations leading to the CPA designation, Samuel Nadeau, intermediate auditor at our office in Drummondville, took the oath of office.

This honor is only offered to two graduates, French and English, having highly distinguished themselves during their studies.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton would like to congratulate Mr. Nadeau for his leadership and his dedication to excellence!

Congratulations to Christine Regimbal, Assurance Partner with the Montreal office, for acting as Honorary Co-Chair of the 19th Annual Golf Tournament of the Foundation of the Women’s Centre of Montréal. The event was a resounding success, raising $5,000 more than the target of $53,000, which will be used for the welfare of women and their families.

Denise Tessier, Assurance Partner, had already been honoured last March for “leaving her mark on the history” of the Foundation of the Women’s Centre of Montréal. In particular, she has served as Chair of the Board of Directors (her term of office ends soon) and has been an active member of the organization for 18 years. Congratulations!

Congratulations to our two partners for their dedication to the cause of women and their community involvement!

About the Women’s Centre of Montréal

For over 40 years, the Centre’s mission has been very simple, yet complex: “help women help themselves” by providing them with the necessary tools to improve their personal and family living conditions. The Centre’s main strength resides in its ability to bring together Québécois, immigrant and Aboriginal women under the same roof, offering them a wide range of services in a warm environment, while respecting their rhythm and their aspirations so that they contribute actively to our community.
