Accounting standards and non-authoritative guidance

Learn how our members ignite the spirit of volunteerism and influence decision-making in standard-setting.

We have a large number of volunteers who have made a significant impact and influenced decision-making in many areas of the profession.

In regards to standard-setting, dedicated members of our task forces, committees and boards undertake research and identify changes to the standards that should be considered by the Accounting Standards Board — a body independent of CPA Canada. They also provide input during the development of those changes.

CPA Canada also works with volunteers in the timely development of high quality, non-authoritative accounting guidance and support for the profession. Without the valued and dedicated efforts of these volunteers, this guidance would not be possible.
