IFRS e-learning for directors

  • Canada Image

20 Jan 2009

Deloitte (Canada) has developed an IFRS e-learning program for directors. To effectively fulfill their oversight responsibilities throughout and after the transition from Canadian GAAP to IFRS, board and audit committee members must maintain their financial literacy.

And with IFRS conversion activities already underway, now is the time to start the IFRS education process. Deloitte's IFRS e-learning program for directors focuses on awareness-building rather than technical details. The program, which is available on CD or on-line, can be used for individual self-study or as group sessions facilitated by a Deloitte IFRS professional. The interactive material:
  • discusses the challenges that companies may face through the conversion
  • highlights difficult issues that management and boards may encounter throughout the changeover process
  • outlines differences between IFRS and Canadian GAAP for all key standards
  • provides practical examples based on Deloitte's experiences implementing IFRS around the globe
  • recommends questions that directors should consider asking management or internal and external auditors
