About the AASB

The Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (AASB) establishes standards for assurance and related services engagements. We contribute to the development of International Standards on Auditing (ISAs), which we adopt as Canadian Auditing Standards (CASs), by participating in consultations and activities of the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) to ensure Canadian entities’ auditing needs are considered.
