Media Advisory - Investigative and Forensic Accounting Conference Being Held in Niagara Falls (October 20-21, 2008)



    TORONTO, Oct. 8 /CNW/ - Forensic Accountants -- part accountant, part
detective -- are the "go to people" when numbers are the prime suspect. They
use their professional accounting skills, investigative skills, and an
investigative mindset to perform a variety of functions in many different
situations.
    The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) established the
Alliance for Excellence in Investigative and Forensic Accounting (IFA
Alliance) in 1998 to implement a specialist certification program for
Chartered Accountants practising in investigative and forensic accounting. The
upcoming conference is a presentation of the IFA Alliance.
    This year marks the 10th anniversary of the "must attend" event for
forensic accounting specialists, Chartered Accountants and other professionals
in business, industry and government. The two-day event features more than 30
speakers and industry experts.

    
    Topics of discussion will include the following:

    -  E-discovery: Challenges, Opportunities
    -  The Expert Witness
    -  Cross-border and Other Topical Issues in Anti-Money Laundering
       Compliance
    -  Cross-border Fraud Litigation

    Additional information on the conference including a list of keynote
speakers can be found on a special website (www.cpd.cica.ca/IAFA).

    Where:  Sheraton on the Falls Hotel, Niagara Falls, Ontario
