On March 27, 2020, the Canadian Public Accountability Board (CPAB) released a message that acknowledges the implications of COVID-19 on Canadian public company audits. They recognize that the situation is highly fluid, and that new issues and risks will emerge.

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting employees, the economy, mobility and financial systems. It is likely that auditors may encounter scope limitations or complex auditing and accounting issues.
