Seminar Description: Formerly Known As: IFRS - A Survey of Standards

The objective of this seminar is to provide participants with a solid introduction to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) incorporated as part of CPA Canada Handbook – Accounting – Part I. The course will also cover IFRS standards currently under development at the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) that are expected to be introduced during the next year. The focus is on the IFRS standards that apply to most profit-oriented entities. At the end of this two-day seminar you will be aware of the foundation of IFRS and be able to explain IFRS content. Examples and exercises throughout are incorporated for you to identify application issues.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
• Explain the IFRS standards that apply to most profit-oriented entities
