PSAB's 2017-2020 draft strategic plan: Invitation to comment

Comment on the Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB)’s draft of its next strategic plan, which outlines the vision, mission, strategic objectives and actions that will guide its standard-setting activities for the next three years.

The past three years were transformational and challenging for PSAB, with many government organizations coming into the CPA Canada Public Sector Accounting Handbook, as well as some significant new standards being put in place.

Key objectives and activities for 2017-2020

PSAB’s Draft Strategic Plan for 2017-2020 proposes the following key objectives and activities for the next three years:

  • finalize the conceptual framework
  • review its approach to International Public Sector Accounting Standards
  • encourage stakeholders to support and accept its standards
  • implement a not-for-profit sector strategy that meets the public interest
  • develop standards that support public interest considerations

Through this Invitation to Comment, PSAB will obtain and analyze your input to make modifications to the draft strategic plan, with the aim of finalizing it for implementation in April 2017.
