This March, Quebec accounting firm Mallette LLP, will become the first TIAG member to hit a record 1,000 employees with the start of the 2019 tax season. This is the first time Mallette has reached this milestone since the firm split from Arthur Andersen in 2002. 

Founded in December 1940, Boulanger, Fortier, Rondeau & Co. established its first office in Quebec City. It merged in 1978 with Mallette, Benoit & Associates of Montreal to become Mallette, Benoit, Boulanger, Rondeau & Associates.

Over the years, the company has spread: from mergers to acquisitions, the company became, in 2002, Mallette LLP, the tenth largest accounting firm in Canada and fifth largest in Quebec with 30 offices throughout the province.

Browne Craine is excited to share that it will be supporting The Children’s Centre’s Annual Granite Mann Challenge next year. Taking place on Sunday 22nd September 2019 at Cringle, the Granite Mann Challenge is the only off road triathlon in the Isle of Man in which participants can take part in either as an individual or as a team. The Children’s Centre and Browne Craine have agreed a three year sponsorship which will see Browne Craine supporting the event until at least 2021.

Last September (2018), a Browne Craine ladies team consisting of Alex Catlow, Lynsey Smith and Amy Killip, took part in the Challenge and were the first ladies team to cross the finish line.

Browne Craine wanted to get involved and support the event because it helps raise money for a fantastic local charity and its staff regularly take part and enjoy the events which are organised throughout the year by The Children’s Centre. This year, Alex, Lynsey and Amy are taking part in the event again with one mission only, to go back and defend their title.
