TORONTO, Sept. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - XBRL Canada has announced the program for its annual conference to be held on October 17th at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier in Ottawa.

Keynote Speaker will be Daniel Kelly, President and CEO of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, who will speak on the needs of independent business for savings in the costs of compliance with government requirements.
Gianluca Garbellotto will explain how significant savings are being achieved in the Australian SBR Program. And David Blaszkowsky, of the US Dept of Treasury will outline key initiatives under way and planned within the US Government in this area.
Paul Montoya will describe how the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in the US has used XBRL to save millions of dollars in filing costs and achieved much greater effectiveness. And Bill Foster will describe the implementation of XBRL at Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario (DICO)
An afternoon panel will discuss the issues around Implementation of Standardized Data and will include many of these speakers as well as senior representatives of key government departments and agencies, such as CRA, Statscan and OSFI. The full program can be viewed at www.xbrl.ca.
