Description

Join us on Wednesday, October 25th for a breakfast information session to discuss the evolution of technologies such as XBRL, blockchain and artificial intelligence, and the current and potential implications on corporate reporting in Canada and internationally. Immediately following this session, we will also host a seminar focusing on the specifics of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) XBRL requirements and how they affect Canadian foreign private issuers.

Why Attend?

As part of a broader trend towards the digitization of corporate reporting, regulators around the world have been adopting an approach of requiring financial reports to be in machine readable form so they can be processed more efficiently. Most recently, the SEC released a notice in March 2017 that effectively requires all Canadian companies listed with the SEC as a foreign private issuer using IFRS to begin filing their financial statements electronically using XBRL. The change is effective for fiscal periods ending on or after December 15, 2017.

During the breakfast information session on corporate reporting in the digital age, participants will learn:

  • How new technologies like Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data are impacting business and financial reporting

  • How securities regulators are advancing the use of XBRL internationally

  • How structured data such as XBRL is used for reporting and for business and investment analysis

Who are the speakers?

  • John Turner, CEO, XBRL International

  • Mark Pinch, Associate Chief Accountant, Ontario Securities Commission

  • Mike Willis, Assistant Director, Division of Economic and Risk Analysis, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

Take advantage of this opportunity to gain valuable insight into the evolution of corporate reporting.
