XBRL Canada Hands-on Workshop - Using The IFRS Taxonomy

TORONTO, May 9 /CNW/ - This year and early next year after switching to IFRS, over 300 Canadian cross-listed companies are scheduled to file XBRL with the SEC for fiscal periods ending on or after June 15, 2011. Although the SEC has not yet accepted the IFRS taxonomy, most experts are recommending that companies still prepare in advance for filing early in 2012. The U.S. is following many other jurisdictions that have successfully implemented XBRL around the world. As Canadian public companies complete their IFRS transition, Canadian regulators will most likely begin a dialogue around an XBRL mandate.

Now is the time to get familiar with the IFRS taxonomy and how to use it.

This seminar introduces the XBRL IFRS taxonomy- what it is, how it works, how it is best used.  Participants will have a chance to use it in preparing an instance document to help them understand what would be involved in actually preparing and filing regulatory documents. Additional information will be provided on current regulatory rules, the Global Filer Manual and how companies are addressing the issues that arise.

Instructor will be Eric E Cohen of PwC, a co-founder of XBRL and frequent author, speaker and teacher on technical and taxonomy topics for XBRL Canada, XBRL International and XBRL US.
