The AASB is coming to Vancouver – and we want to talk to you

Share Your Views

The Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (AASB) is focused on bringing the diverse voices of its stakeholders across Canada to the forefront.  And this October we’re coming to you, Vancouver!

This is your chance to have a say and talk directly to the people on the front line of assurance standard setting on current issues you face.   

We are holding two separate outreach sessions:

1.  Enhancing Investor Confidence in Financial Information Beyond Financial Statements

2.  Issues in applying Canadian Auditing Standards (CASs) to Audits of Small and Medium-sized Entities (SMEs).


Why Attend?

1.  Attend the enhancing investor confidence session to:

  • Get an update on the status of the recent CFA/CPAB/AASB initiative to understand information needs of investors, securities regulatory developments and recent changes to auditor reporting;
  • Discuss the implications of the changes for preparers, audit committees and auditors;
  • Have an opportunity to provide:
    • feedback to regulators and the audit profession; and
    • further input directly to the AASB on the future role of the auditor.

2.  Attend the audit of SMEs session to discuss:

  • Challenges you may be having in applying CASs in audits of SMEs;
  • How CASs could better address SME audits; and
  • How the AASB can better involve practitioners like you in the standard-setting process.
