Overview

The proposed amendments to Section 7150, Auditor's Consent to the Use of a Report of the Auditor Included in an Offering Document, are being made primarily to address the requirements of stock exchanges (recognized by securities regulatory authorities in Canada) for the auditor’s consent to include certain statements. In addition, the AASB is proposing a number of amendments to correct an oversight in the previous drafting of Section 7150, and to improve the clarity of the Section.
