The Big RDV Relève Inc.TM Event

Business transfers: an issue for the future of Quebec

Business transfers: an issue for the future of Quebec

Events The speech will be presented mainly in French.

Against the backdrop of an aging population, where 30% of business leaders who will retire in the next 10 years plan to simply close down their business without attempting to sell it, the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal and the Fonds de solidarité FTQ have once again joined forces to hold the third edition of the RDV Relève Inc.TM.

On May 13, the RDV Relève Inc.TM will culminate in a major event at the Palais des congrès de Montréal during which the business community, successors, assignors, the government, and the media will mobilize around the major issues concerning entrepreneurial succession.
