Media Advisory/Quebec's Budget : RSM Richter Chamberland LLP Comments on the Financial and Economic Update

Interview Opportunity

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 26, 2009) -


Tomorrow, October 27th, Mr. Raymond Bachand, Quebec's Minister of Finance, will shed some light on the state of Quebec's public finances during his financial and economic update. At that time, Quebecers will have the opportunity to find out whether the predictions put forth during the 2009-2010 budget presentation last March are still on track.

In the current context of fragile economic recovery, will the budget provide sufficient assistance to Quebec-based SMEs, or will the ensuing deficit put more pressure on them?

RSM Richter Chamberland, one of Canada's largest independent accounting, business advisory and consulting firms, offers accreditation, tax and consulting services to individuals and businesses of any size. We invite you to meet with one of their tax professionals to discuss issues regarding the content of the next provincial budget.


Michel Babeu, chartered accountant and partner at RSM Richter Chamberland's Montreal office, has developed in-depth expertise in tax matters for the past 26 years, specifically for SMEs and business owner-operators. He has also been a member of the FTM Investment Fund's Board of Directors for five years. He is a frequent speaker for various activities organized by the Ordre des comptables agrees du Quebec and the Association de planification fiscale et financiere. He also teaches classes on various subjects, such as corporate asset rollovers and transfers (Section 85), as well as on the annual tax update.

He will be able to comment on the following questions, among others:

- What new elements does the Finance Minister's declaration bring to the table to reassure and support businesses and individuals?

- Will the proposed measures be enough to stimulate the economy in a timely manner?

- Will said measures help SMEs secure a beneficial position throughout this economic recovery?


Mr. Babeu is available to share his thoughts and give interviews as of 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 27th, as well as Wednesday, October 28th.
