Apply today.

The AcSB is currently seeking new members, with a preference for financial statement preparers and users. If you are interested, please submit a resumé by September 25, 2015.

The AcSB goes on to say:

Are you interested in debating accounting standards issues arising from the application of
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) in Canada?

Would you like to participate in Canada’s contribution to
international accounting standard setting?

If so, apply to the Accounting Standards Board (AcSB) to volunteer for the IFRS Discussion Group. Preference will be given to financial statement preparers and users.

The purpose of the Group is to assist the AcSB regarding the identification of issues arising on the application of IFRSs in Canada. The Group discusses these issues in a public forum to raise awareness and make recommendations to the AcSB to refer particular issues to the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) or the IFRS Interpretations Committee.

Group members are from a variety of backgrounds, including financial statement preparers, users and auditors involved with a range of large to small entities.


Group members are required to:

  • have in-depth knowledge of IFRSs;
  • be aware of the challenges that the application of IFRSs are creating in Canadian financial reporting; and
  • identify issues arising in their own experience, as well as discuss issues identified by others.


Group members are expected to prepare for and participate in three one-day meetings per year. The working language of the Group is English.

Out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

To apply, send a current resumé to Marites Alvarez, at malvarez@cpacanada.ca, by September 25, 2015.
