MONTREAL, September 21, 2017 – For the second year in a row, on September 15th some 2,000 Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton employees gathered to give back to the community.

The firm closed approximately 100 of its offices in Quebec, and in the Ottawa and Edmundston regions to allow its employees to devote a workday in order to make a difference in more than 60 community organizations.

Emilio B. Imbriglio, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton President and CEO said: “We are committed to ensuring the vitality of our communities. Proudly rooted in local communities for almost 70 years, it gives us great pleasure, professionally and personally, to dedicate a workday to helping those in need. We are engaged in supporting people and their communities and help with the success of their organizations. I would like to thank all of my colleagues who passionately worked towards making a difference during this special day.”

Giving back to the community, it’s what we do!

RCGT in the Community day is part of a worldwide initiative of the Grant Thornton International organization that contributes to community development by making it possible for some 47,000 employees in more than 130 countries to dedicate a workday to support a local organization’s mission.
