Course Details

With an applied emphasis, this course provides an intensive exploration of the principle and applicable standards, reporting requirements and disclosure requirements, including notes to the financial statements, of the main body of financial reporting literature in Canada as it pertains to both International Financial Reporting Requirements (IFRS) and Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE). Students will become conversant with the underlying bases (historical cost, fair value) and end user financial information needs upon which the two sets of Canadian financial reporting standards are based. Students will acquire the technical proficiency expected of professional accountants and develop ability to articulate diverse economic events within the financial reporting framework. This course qualifies as a prerequisite for entrance into the Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) Professional Education Program (PEP).
