TORONTO, June 12, 2012 /CNW/ - Many government departments collect reports from the public and then process and manage those reports. However, the different departments all have different systems for collecting the data, which means their public constituencies need to interact with vastly different systems. Around the world, XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) is being used to standardize and streamline data handling systems through the implementation of SBR (Standardized Business Reporting).
This conference explores the global use of SBR and its potential for Canada and will feature guest speakers who:
- have played a significant role in the implementation of SBR in other countries, like The Netherlands, Australia and Great Britain;
- are with a company that has filed information under one of these SBR programs; and
- are playing a key role in Canadian Government programs such as the Red Tape Reduction Commission and the Open Government Initiative that can benefit considerably from SBR;
The Conference will take place in Ottawa at a downtown venue to be announced. So please mark your calendars for October 17th from 9AM - 4PM. Registration details will be announced soon.
XBRL Canada is supported and administered by the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants.
