The dedicated members of our task forces, committees and boards collaborate with the Audit and Assurance Standards Board (AASB) -- a body independent of CPA Canada — by undertaking research, identifying changes to the standards that should be considered by the AASB and by providing input during the development of those changes. They also monitor the progress of standards as they are developed by the International Audit and Assurance Standards Board. Incredibly, some groups commit approximately 400 hours each year to these tasks. CPA Canada also works with volunteers in the timely development of high quality, non-authoritative audit and assurance guidance and support for our profession. Without the valued and dedicated efforts of these volunteers, this guidance would not be possible. Find out about the amazing work of our volunteers and committees!
