Roundtable Discussion – Share your feedback on the future of standard setting in Canada

March 9, 2022, 1-3 PM ET Please note that Registration for this roundtable is now closed.

Join members of the Independent Review Committee on Standard Setting in Canada for a roundtable discussion on their Consultation Paper and the key matters explored.

Share your views and thoughts

We want your feedback on key matters such as:

  • A call for action on sustainability reporting standards: The Committee recommends creating a Canadian sustainability standards board. This new board would work alongside Canada's existing standards boards and liaise with the new International Sustainability Standards Board, ensuring that the Canadian perspective is part of international decision making.
  • Safeguarding independence: The Committee asks if additional safeguards are needed to keep Canadian standard setting independent, such as revisiting the current legal structure or funding model.
  • Being responsive to stakeholder needs: The Committee asks if the established process for setting standards is timely and effective, including engaging the right stakeholders at the right time.
