Note these are purely self-study products and there will be no access to instructors for questions and answers. Each title qualifies for verifiable CPD hours upon successful completion of a quiz at the end of the session. Unlimited quiz attempts are available until the passing grade of 70% or better is achieved. After this, you will no longer have access to the quiz.

NOTE: Access to this course is only available until September 30, 2022.
Course login details are normally sent to registrants within one week from date of registration.


Recorded: November 2019 

Because the video recordings are taken from live seminars, the information presented is up-to-date at the time of recording. While we make an effort to keep our inventory updated and seasonally remove outdated titles, changes in accounting, tax and other acts and legislations can happen at any time. It is up to the purchaser to take note of the recording date, and to determine for themselves whether the recorded video is still relevant to their needs. 

This seminar will cover all of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) incorporated as part of CPA Canada Handbook – Accounting – Part I. The focus is on the IFRS standards that apply to most profit-oriented entities.  Participants will also be provided with information on IFRS standards currently under development and the potential impact on financial statements. At the end of this two-day seminar you will be aware of the foundation of IFRS and be able to explain IFRS content. Examples and exercises are incorporated throughout the session for you to identify application issues.
