Prestige Partnership Between BDO and The FCCQ

November 2016

MONTRÉAL, November 9, 2016 – BDO Canada s.r.l./S.E.N.C.R.L./LLP (“BDO”) is pleased to announce it has partnered with the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec (“FCCQ”) as a “Prestige” partner and official application evaluator for Les Mercuriades 2017, 2018 and 2019 competitions.

BDO is proud to be associated with this prestigious annual competition hosted by the FCCQ and believes in the importance of recognizing the visionary thinking, perseverance and know-how of businesses contributing to the development of Quebec. We applaud the FCCQ for supporting this initiative since 1981, and are delighted to have a team of skilled BDO professionals contributing to the evaluation of each application, along with high-level university students, to ensure once again the great success of this award.

Over the years, more than 10,000 businesses have applied for Les Mercuriades awards. Finalists and winning companies have greatly benefited from the esteem the awards bring, increasing their reputation among their peers, and among existing and prospective clients. The highly-publicized, world-class evening gala for Les Mercuriades also offers a significant profile to award recipients.

BDO and is people are eagerly looking forward to working towards this engagement, wish applicants the best of luck and thank them for their contributions as inspiring role models for the next generation of business leaders, as well as Quebec's entire economic community. For more information regarding the competition and the business application process, which closes on December 23, 2016, please visit www.mercuriades.ca.
