CPA Canada hosted a roundtable in Toronto to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to share views on how to position Canada to excel in the digital and data-driven economy of the future and compete as a global innovation leader.
The roundtable was hosted by CPA Canada in response to the National Digital and Data Consultations, which were launched by Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) in June 2018.
In addition to representatives from ISED and CPA Canada, the roundtable was attended by CPAs and business leaders from a range of sectors and diverse backgrounds including finance and accounting, audit and assurance, risk management, cybersecurity, financial technology, data protection and privacy, education, and innovation and governance. Together they provide representation from small to large businesses and accounting firms in Canada.
The roundtable focused on three key ISED themes: Unleashing Innovation, Trust and Data Privacy, and the Future of Work. The CPA Canada report highlights the discussion and views from the participants around these themes, followed by key questions raised by participants during the interactive roundtable discussion.
