On August 17, 2016, the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (AASB) released its Strategic Plan for 2016-2021 which outlines its mission, vision, strategic objectives, specific strategies and actions that will guide it in carrying out its standard-setting mandate for this period.

As set out in this Strategic Plan, the AASB plans to continue to set high-quality standards that meet the needs of Canadian stakeholders while focussing on increasing stakeholder engagement.

In addition, on the same date, the AASB issued a staff-prepared Basis of Conclusions document which provides a brief summary of the AASB's objectives in developing its 2016-2021 Strategic Plan, the public exposure and approval steps for this plan and how the AASB dealt with significant matters arising from comments received in response to its Invitation to Comment.
