IFRS discussion group

Find out how the IFRS Discussion Group raises awareness of IFRS application issues in Canada. You can access written reports and audio webcasts of discussions, or attend a meeting as an observer.

The Accounting Standards Board (AcSB) established the IFRS Discussion Group to implement and maintain a regular public forum in which to discuss issues that arise in Canada when applying International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

The purpose of this forum is to:

  • raise awareness in Canada of issues arising from the application of IFRS as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB)
  • make recommendations, when appropriate, to the AcSB to refer particular issues to the IASB or IFRS Interpretations Committee
