On 13 April 2015, CPA Canada offers a webinar to discuss the work of the IASB to establish International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as the global standard for financial information, as well as the role that Canada plays in influencing the development of international standards. The webinar will be hosted by the Chair of the Accounting Standards Board, Linda Mezon; her guests will be International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) Chair Hans Hoogervorst and Board member, Stephen Cooper.

Application of IFRSs has been mandatory in Canada since 2011 although there were exceptions for investment entities and rate regulated entities. Canada has since been an active and important voice in the development of IFRSs. The Canadian standard-setter AcSB is also an ASAF member.

The topics to be discussed during the webinar are:

  • Complexity in accounting standards
  • Disclosure overload
  • Global effective dates of new standards
  • Key implementation concerns for revenue and credit impairment
  • Latest developments on leases or insurance and other projects

Registration for the webinar is free. Participants are asked to submit questions on the topics above (or other topics) when they register. Please click for registration and more information on the webinar.
