Jan 10, 2019

On January 10, 2019, the Canadian Public Accountability Board (CPAB) released their strategic plan. The next three years promises both challenges and opportunities in audit regulation and in the drive for high quality, consistent audits of public companies in Canada.

The 2021 audit environment will require an agile and progressive regulator keenly focused on improving audit quality and heightening investor protection. CPAB has consulted with key stakeholders, including investors, audit committees, other regulators and our employees in developing this strategic plan.

Over the next three years, CPAB will drive sustainable solutions to accelerate audit quality. To do this we will pursue innovation, continuous improvement and next generation audit quality while engaging with the stakeholders that impact and depend on audit quality. Regulatory excellence, trust and professionalism will be core to all our work.
