Under Canadian Securities Administrators National Instrument 52-108, public accounting firms that audit Canadian reporting issuers (RIs) must participate in CPAB's oversight program.
If your firm is a single national partnership that carries out its auditing practice using different names in different markets, you will register as a single firm.
If your firm is a national or international association of firms with more than one partnership in Canada that audits the financial statements of Canadian reporting issuers, you should register each partnership auditing reporting issuers separately with CPAB.
Firms using more than one legal name should register each name under which they are licensed to sign audit reports for Canadian reporting issuer clients.
The information submitted as part of the registration process will be reviewed. If any information is inaccurate or incomplete, we will delay registration until the firm rectifies the deficiencies.
If we decline registration, we provide the applicant firm with written reason(s), as well as an opportunity to participate in a hearing to present its case.
